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.

The choice of happiness

Just like the countless clouds that have been covering the sky for weeks now, my life is filled with small and large moments that ultimately make up a jam-packed week.
