A photographer from 1985 to 1995, in 1996 Nijssen began creating sculptures and paintings which he describes as ‘journeys on a flat surface or in a three dimensional shape’.

"...my paintings and sculptures represent my feeling for honesty in shapes, composition and colour. With Brancusi I share the belief that truth is everything. His work has become the touchstone for perfection, the perfection for simplicity. By simplifying I try to find the quality of balance within a shape. I try to attain honesty by the omission of unnecessary shapes. My work is largely abstract with sometimes figurative elements. As an artist, I am omnivorous. I take everything up in me, my field of vision is unlimited." - Antonius Nijssen.
