Lives and works in Berlin
After finishing his Masters Degree in Neuroscience at LMU, he went on to doing a Fine Arts Degree at Abdk, Munich.
He explores a variety of themes in his paintings, from collage-like composition, with re- contextualising fragments, that result in unusual harmonies, which capture the viewer into Maas’s multiverses, where precision meets fluidity, to sepia-toned monkey portraits and self- portraits in which he explores the topic of gender in a series of works where his face is transposed into various female figures.
This ambivalence and the coming together of contrasting subjects are what characterises Sebastians Maas’s inventive and playful pieces.
