Maes organizes and participates in events and exhibitions worldwide. With celebrities and high attendees, Gallery’s and top art-fairs. His own work draws the attention of international collectors; his Sculpture designs and paintings are published in art books as contemporary masters, contemporary sculptors and art magazines. Influenced by a number of fields, including design, technology, science, architecture, and archaeology, as well as art history.

Maes artwork shows an extraordinary collection of paintings with ordinary objects in an unusual context.

They attract the viewer’s interest by giving new meanings to familiar things. The use of ordinary objects in unfamiliar spaces is joined to his desire to create poetic imagery as well as his consciousness to think about the Universe  Thomas Maes described the process of painting as the art of putting colors side by side in such a way that their real aspect is effaced, so that familiar objects  clouds, amphora’s, houses, trees or cubic forms - become united in a single poetically disciplined image.

The poetry of these images dispense with any symbolic significance, old or new. Each of these recurring themes can be interpreted differently and has significant meanings.

His paintings entitled “Dark Matter”, “A New World” or “Civilization” represent images which evoke a kind of mystery.

Thomas Maes' constant play with reality and illusion can be attributed to his interest in history, science and culture.

In his artworks Maes is playing back and forth, zapping reality and illusion on and off, reflecting his constantly shifting perception during his mental time journey. Since many years, Thomas Maes formed his own signature in a very clean, concise and precise style. Thomas Maes' interest is to inspire us; his works represent both dreams and apparent paradoxes at once.

The themes and motifs encourage reflecting upon our world, Mankind, Genesis, Macrocosm and the Universe.
