Artist biography

Artistic duo Maurice Scheltens and Liesbeth Abbenes pursue a diverse array of themes in their collaborative work, but what they share is a passion for compositional precision. Really aiming to convey the most carefully crafted materialization of their creative vision, Scheltens & Abbenes thrive in the space of artistic illusion.

Working between the realms of photography and installations, Scheltens & Abbenes often allow works to build on each other, thus developing an organic series that is not predefined but rather that reflects the inherent evolution of creative expression. Throughout these creations, viewers of Scheltens & Abbenes’ art can sense the artist’s presence in the tangible investigation that plays a role in each work.

Scheltens & Abbenes’ unique approach has proven incredibly successful for them. In addition to commissions afforded them for works in prestigious locales such as Galliera Musee de la Mode in Paris, The Kunsthal in Rotterdam, and the Art Institute of Chicago, Scheltens & Abbeneshave also enjoyed numerous collaborations with design agencies and fashion houses in recent years.
