Mathieu Klomp

(1984, Amsterdam, Netherlands)

Biography

The dutch sculptor Mathieu Klomp creates life-size sculptors out of melted plastic.

In his work he is looking for the tension between the mundaine and fysical on the one hand and the subjective world of symbolic meaning on the other hand. He is representative of authentic art and wants to be firmly grounded.

His challenge is to show many different people that art can be attractive and have deeper meaning at the same time,
