Maurice van Es

Who are you?

Maurice van Es.

What kind of music do you listen to when you work?

Lately into Ernst Reijsegers beautiful compositions after watching Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten dreams.

Earl Sweatshirt - Earl. Tyler the Creator - Bastard. (

What inspires you?

The differences between different material. Thinking of the difference between a certain animal and human. (They are so different.) All the relationships I have with the people and objects around me. This moment! The here! The now!

What themes do you pursue?

Celebration of everything around me because I live now.

Name some of your favorite artists.

Wislawa Szymborska! I fell in love with her work one year ago and still am fascinated by her poems. Szymborska (1923-2012) is a Polish poet who wrote about the most insignificant simple subjects we all take for granted but with her words you can look at these things again in a different way. 

She can make the most complex things very simple. And the most simple things very complex.

Makers of Seinfeld. This show ended 15 years ago but I still experience Seinfeld moments from now and then.

Others: Werner Herzog, Nigel Shafran, Ernst Reijseger, Tyler the Creator, Larry David, Louis CK, Hans Peter Feldmann, Morrissey.
