In addition to mixed media works on paper, Korsten creates paintings, sculptures and installations. He is represented by major Dutch galleries, and his work is in museum, corporate and private collections, including that of Dutch Queen Beatrix. His work has been shown at major European fairs, including TEFAF Maastricht, PAN Amsterdam and the Cologne Art Fair.
