About the Artist: Hans Van de Bovenkamp

Renowned for his open-air public monumental sculpture, Hans Van de Bovenkamp has been described as an artist-mystic whose work – with its signature power, lyricism, and grand proportions – heightens the viewer’s sense of imagination and discovery. A Dutchman and a youthful émigré to Ontario, Canada, and then the United States, he was involved in the 1960’s avant-garde New York “Tenth Street” scene and was an adherent of Abstract Expressionism. Since then, he has maintained residences in New York City and Sagaponack in the Hamptons. Over the past fifty years, Mr. Van de Bovenkamp has earned an international reputation for designing, fabricating, and installing (over 100) unique commissioned sculptures and fountains in collaboration with architects, private individuals, museums, and public entities. His works can be seen in public, private, corporate and museum collections throughout the United State, Canada and Europe. Recent solo exhibitions include Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ, and the Danubiana Meulensteen Museum, Bratislava, Slovakia.
