Hanneke Beaumont

Hanneke Beaumont

Hanneke Beaumont was born in Maastricht (Netherlands). After studying in the U.S., she returned to Europe and came to Belgium, where she still lives today. Beaumont started her artistic studies at the académie de Braine l’Alleud, then followed sculpture at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de La Cambre and at the Hogere Rijksschool voor Beeldende Kunsten in Anderlecht. She had her very first solo show in 1983.

An important turn in her career happened in 1994 when she was awarded, for her sculpture group « Le Courage », the major award of the Centre International d’Art Contemporain Château Beychevelle. Shortly after, she participated in the second Exposiciòn Internacional de Esculturas en la Calle, organized by the Colegio de Arquitectos de Canarias in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where her work was permanently installed. In 2005, the Museum Beelden aan Zee in The Hague presented an important retrospective of her work. More recently, in 2011, after artists such as Botero, Pomodoro, Mitoraj or Folon, Hanneke Beaumont was awarded the "Premio Pietrasanta e la Versilia nel Mondo" award. The artist will have a solo show at the Frederik Meiers Gardens & Sculpture Park.

Present in numerous public and private collections, Hanneke Beaumont today enjoys an international reputation while her work is exhibited worldwide: in the US, Canada, UK, Europe and more recently Asia and India.

The artist shares her work time between Brussels and Pietrasanta, in Italy. Her sculptures are realized in terracotta, bronze or cast iron.
