Grüezi and Hello

My name is Matthias Maier and I am a visual artist based in Basel, Switzerland and New York City.

I make art because it makes me happy and I want to share this happiness with you through my artworks. My work includes painting, photography, cyanotype, screen printing and digital fine art printing as well as collage.

Creativity is a journey, not a destination.

About summer flowers and other passions

The week was less stingy with summer stimuli than the previous ones and I finally found enough time to pursue making art.

Rainy Days never say goodbye

The new week marks the beginning of a new month and the start of the second half of the year. Sunny summer hasn’t really arrived yet, but the alternatives also give reason to be happy.
