Fratres Bronze Sculpture Boys Brothers Male Nude Figure Marble Stone

Van der Kant desires to sculpt young people who still stand uninhibited and curiously in life. The reason he chooses to sculpt boys is, because he is one himself, this way the subject is closer to him. The anatomy of his figures testify of perfectionism. Van der Kant's subjects show similarities with the sculptures from the Greek and Roman antiquity, where youngsters were admired for their vitality and naivety.

1949 Kampen, Netherlands

Wim van der Kant (b. 1949, Kampen) is a self-taught artist. In addition to his busy job as a teacher, he is an inspired sculptor. Only when his work met his own perfectionist conditions did he decide to go public and show his work to the world. Since then, starting in 1995, he has been exhibiting at Morren Galleries. Van der Kant likes to make sculptures of young people, who are still curious and uninhibited in life. The reason for sculpting boys is that he himself is of the male gender.

The sculptures show similarities to Greek and Roman antiquity, where youngsters were admired for their vitality and naivete.
