Marten Herma Anderson is a Berlin based artist and architect. Born in 1989 on the former GDR Island of Rügen, Anderson grew up by the Baltic Sea in West Germany and studied Architecture at the Bauhaus in Weimar and the University of the Arts in Berlin.

Berlin’s eclectic, contradictory gestalt of its divided history and a childhood by the northern coast shaped Anderson’s artistic identity aesthetically, but also technically and ecologically. He is intrigued by binary opposites – the hard and the soft, constructed lines and organic shapes, the manmade and natural, raw materials and bright colors.

His architecture design merges unrefined materials with great warm and bright colors for a made-to-measure approach. Whether sourcing vintage pieces, connecting rooms with an overarching concept that links and unifies, or just designing inbuilt wood work, Anderson seeks to find innovative and sustainable solutions for his clients. 

Anderson’s art focuses on digital paintings, photorealistic renderings, as well as physical objects made of clay. In his work he employs a similar tactic – hyperrealism with a dreamy touch of painterly effect. This produces an uncanny tactility in their marriage of content and form; an image or sculpture that could be interpreted as overly wrought or cold at first glance slowly reveals a playful sensuality in the small but effective creative decisions embedded within their composition. Anderson’s education is architectural design, which manifests in his illustrations but also in his forms as graphic, large-scale sculptures command attention with a weight that is often attributed to public infrastructure – domes, tunnels, slabs, and foundations.
