Home ยป Bio

Janec van Veen is known for his surrealist sculptures that blur the line between fantasy and reality by seamlessly blending real animals into otherworldly, ethereal beings.

Inspired by a variety of formative interests; evolutionary biology, art history, myths and legends, dystopian fiction, film and philosophy, and a keen sense of how human activity is affecting the natural world, each sculpture tells its own unique story.

He graduated from Goldsmiths University with a first class honours degree in Fine Art in 2001.

All the materials he uses have been legally acquired.
