Filip Vervaet

Filip Vervaet
(°1977, BE)
lives and works in Deurne (Antwerp), Belgium.

The relationship between humans, artificiality, and nature assumes a significant role in Filip Vervaet's drawings, sculptures, and installations.

As you step into Vervaet's world, you enter a twilight realm brimming with intrigue and serenity.

His work weaves together different layers, evoking the echoes of art history and sculptural traditions.
It reveals his mastery of bending nature to his will.

In his idiosyncratic visual language, he seamlessly combines diverse materials. Vervaet consistently pushes the boundaries of sculpture, employing an assemblage of materials and techniques.

Vervaet’s mind moves freely between ideas, chaos, and artistic order. It emanates a diffuse quality, embodying both contemporary expression and a rich sculptural heritage. His works convey a sense of duality between found materials and crafted elements, natural and artificial realms, permeating every creation.

It supersedes reality, transcending the boundaries of the tangible.
