"Art is my life, the apparently endless walk from birth to death. My ideas and inspirations come from everything I meet on my way. Each film is always a new adventure; a blank sheet to work on. Each of my works can be seen as a journey, but also as a re-birth."
Maria Korporal was born 1962 in Sliedrecht, the Netherlands. She studied graphics and painting at the St. Joost Academy of Fine Arts in Breda. During her studies she began working with photography and she graduated with, among other things, a video installation. After her studies, in 1986, she moved to Italy, where she returned to painting. In 1989 she co-founded the Italian publishing house Apeiron, directing the production and book design. In this environment she became involved with the use of computers, and she began applying digital techniques also in her art work. Since 1998 she has dedicated herself to using the new media arts for her expression.
Since 2014 she has settled in Berlin.
