Martin Scholt

Martin is an artist. He was born in 1955. He lives and works in Groningen, Netherlands, now.

The project was made for the Art Ovrag festival. The artists transformed the exterior of a college building in the style of the classical abstract paintings by Pete Mondrian.

The project expresses the principal idea of the festival. It makes the connection between contemporary public art and the art of the Avant-Garde. In their work, the artists combined the classical tradition of minimalism in art with the cherished dream of the Avant-Garde artists: “Art for life!”


“Unusual work attracts me more. Such work is always a serious challenge for the artist. In a work of capital size, more physical effort and psychological sense is required. A piece is interesting when it requires solving many tasks and technological effort.

Facing difficulties and new challenges are part of creativity. Out-of-the-box thinking is required to do unusual work,"

— said Dmitry Parkhunov about the piece.
