Abstract Portraits: Powerful Paintings by Mathijs Vissers

Dutch artist Mathijs Vissers (previously) evokes a range of emotions with his ‘Abstract Portraits’ series.

“A series of work reflecting the over-stimulated man of the current times. There’s a million messages fired your way every day, things you should want, places you need to go, people you should envy, it never stops. It’s no wonder today’s youth get stuck in burn-outs because they just can’t seem to achieve the made up perfection in their heads.

It makes for a deformed humanity, a parody of what is human. This is the feeling I portray in this series, in shape resembling portraits, but completely twisted by all these little bits of information into a new image. A busy and chaotic visual, with a layer of empty black beneath.”

— Mathijs Vissers
