ABOUT MY WORK
My name is Martijn van Berkum. I'm a visual artist, working primarily with drawing. In my work I'm interested in the ways in which images and words are able to express, question, or confuse the meaning of things.
The last years my interest has specifically focused on architecture and sculpture. Part of that fascination is about the fun of experimenting with 3D structures, and about translating all the fantastic art and architecture I see around me into a personal visual language. On the other hand, I also like to study how the way we design our environment is an expression of the identity we want it to have. Architecture, as such, isn't merely a matter of visual make-up of a functional structure, it also tells us who we are.
