°Ede, NL, 1971

Education: 1991 – 1996 AKI, Academy, Enschede. 1995 – 1997 Dutch Art Institute (AKI2) Enschede (postgraduate).

Martijn Hesseling was born in Ede, Holland in 1971. From 1991 to 1997 hes studied at tha Acadamy of Art in Enschede and graduated at the Dutch Art Institute. His work goes back to the tradition of painting. More precisely it has a similar visual result by using a different medium: varnish treated newspaper or book sheets which he applies on transparent plexiglass plates. Thanks to the treatment with varnish, the paper sheets become translucent and generate, when laied one on another, the impression of dept even on a bidimensional surface, just as several superposed layers of paint do. The result of this creative process are collages - actually almost reliefs - in which images are constructed by mean of the overlapping and the juxtaposition of thousands of newspaper scraps.
