About the Author: Maurice Blik has lived in England since being liberated from Bergen Belsen, where he was taken as a small child from his birthplace, Amsterdam. The ability to come to terms with this experience and to confront the face of humanity that he had witnessed, stayed silent in his life for some forty years. It finally found a voice in the passionate and exquisite sculpture which began to emerge in the late 1980s.


My Artobiography: The Art of Survival

My artobiography, The Art of Survival, was published in January 2022 by HeavyPress iNK. It is a first hand account of my experience as a five-year-old boy in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, and explores links between this past and key bodies of my work.

I have never found it easy to talk about my work because the sources were too painful for me to contemplate. It has taken a lifetime to come to terms with my background and its impact on my sculpture, which ultimately celebrates life.

The Art of Survival has been produced as a limited edition hardback with slipcase, each one individually signed and numbered by me. (£55)

Natasha Kaplinski quote “his searing childhood experiences, profoundly shaped the sculptor he was to become, renowned for works of majesty and life affirming power“.
