In a nutshell
Matthias Maier is a self-taught Swiss-German artist. He lives and works in Basel, Switzerland and New York City, where he has also started to exhibit. He employs photography, cyanotype, screen printing and collage, as well as acrylic paint to create unique semi-abstract compositions which are characterized by geometric grids. The works usually relate to nature, architecture and people.
Outside the studio, he captures in photographs the obvious and hidden beauty of ordinary days on long walks in both, urban environments as well as in nature.
