reflects the energy of being
Bart Lebesque is a Dutch artist and sculptor who lives and works in the small nature reserve ‘de Maashorst’, where he owns his own forest and sculpture garden. Lebesque is renowned for reusing high-quality waste metal from industrial factories, construction sites and food industry.
He experiments with techniques and treatments that - according to common standards - should not be possible. Unlike most other metal artists he does not use robot-controlled machines or computer design in his creation process. Every part of his work is harvested, loved and shaped with his own hands.
