Artist: Maarten Oortwijn

Maarten OortwijnI’m living in Amsterdam, have two daughters and work as a software engineer in the centre of Amsterdam. My biggest passions are creating images and music (playing guitar, Flamenco and Bossa Nova style). My first artistic adventures started at the age of two, when my parents gave me Bic pen to draw. Soon I began to draw everything around me (and on everything around me when running out of paper). Gradually I learned other techniques and materials, until painting big murals at the age of 25.
At the moment I’m into more modest sizes, switching between analogue and digital. The digital part started with the iPhone and Hipstamatic. First I was focussing on photography but gradually started to use other apps for further processing. The next step came with Paper53, a wonderful, simple and very responsive drawing app.
At the moment my digital work has become a blend of photo’s and drawing.  In the meantime I’m still shooting straight black and white Hipstamatics and creating analogue paintings from time to time. And maybe someday I’ll start with murals again …
Apps used the most for creating images are Image Blender, Snapseed, Photoshop Express, Paper53 and Hipstamatic.
