Over Paul Maas

About Paul Maas Illustration

To understand how something works and translate that into an image: that’s been a daily fascination for me for over 35 years. Pleasure in drawing, painting and design come together with my interest in an immens number of topics, developments and changes in the world, be they in the present, the past or the (possible) future.
