  • Johan Creten

Johan Creten is a Flemish sculptor, nominated for the Flemish Culture Prize in 2009. He is considered one of the precursors – with Thomas Schütte and Lucio Fontana – in introducing ceramics in contemporary art. Fascinated by its beauty, its symbolic impact and the richness of its history, the artist explores the medium through multiple techniques and scales. His painting training brings another dimension to his sculpture work, giving the glaze and its colors a main role in the artworks.
