Artist Statement

‘Bloom’ captures the soft hues of a Squamish sunset on a summer evening, echoing the laid-back energy of the West coast. Featuring playful figures and flowing botanicals, this vibrant mural is a tribute to the community, nature, and adventurous spirit of Squamish.”

Maud van Baar de Knegt is a mixed-media artist from Amsterdam. Having called Vietnam, Canada, Spain, and the Netherlands home, Maud draws inspiration from her diverse cultural experiences. Maud completed her Liberal Arts & Sciences bachelor in the Canadian mountains and attended a fine arts program in Barcelona. Today, Maud is delving deep into the world of textile art at Gerrit Rietveld Academie.

Maud works with a diverse array of mediums, including textile, murals, sculpture, installation, collage, and painting. Her intuitive creations are a vibrant burst of color and energy, frequently incorporating discarded and upcycled materials. Her mixed media pieces explore questions of individual and social identity, emphasizing the human yearning for connection. Through her art, Maud strives to create playful, vibrant worlds – alternative universes that celebrate fluidity and inclusivity.
