Meet the maker
Maurice van Venrooij (1977)  is a contemporary artist who explores the behavior of geometric shapes within a pre-defined set of (geo)metric rules. He works meticulous with ink on paper or more robust in large scale murals. The fixed set of parameters allows Maurice to explore all creative possibilities within, which results in larger series of geometric abstract drawings and paintings.
“Because my artwork is non-figurative, I suppose most people will then classify it as abstract, conceptual or even minimalistic. I mostly see my work as living art systems built with geometric shapes or elements; a fluid pattern that I'm able to capture in a specific moment in time. My study as an architect at the TU Eindhoven has provided me with the fundamentals. The architectonical principles of line, dot, square, grid and zoning are still a mayor influence in my artwork today.“

​​​​​​​In 2023 Maurice van Venrooij was selected from an open call by the Municipal of Helmond to create two large murals (each almost 6 x 10 meter) for the new Council Chamber. These abstract wall paintings were executed with a singular, repetitive shape that followed a grid & flow of a woven structure. The marks made represent all the cities residents and entities -past, present and future- who are all part of the Democratic system which the Council has to govern wisely.​​​​​​​
“I truly enjoyed the creation of this work. When the parameters of these  wall paintings were set, I just knew I wanted to involve the residents of Helmond in the execution of it. Each mark of the residents would bring extra meaning to my artwork; the council would be visually linked to the people in the city. ”
The last part of the mark making was executed by citizens and representatives of various organisations of Helmond.
