"I have followed Maarten's work for years now. It never ceases to amaze me how stunning his work is. Each sculpture has its own sense of life. His work display a strong sense of gesture, weight, and most importantly character."

- Bryan Wynia
Senior Character Artist

"Maarten is a tremendous sculptor and one of the masters in the digital field. From sculpting from life or imagination he has a great ability to twist the realm of reality and still make it believable." 

- Joseph Drust
Artist/Creative Development Manager at Pixologic, INC.

"Maarten's signature style is distinctive and easily recognised from afar. His brilliant portrait busts, figurines and creatures designs have it all. It’s always a pleasant surprise to see what he’s been working on; from a disturbing monstrous creature to erotic pin-up art to legendary film characters, he emphasises the shapes and poses perfectly for the mood and in his own unique way."

- Rudy Massar
