The willow man

I was talking about willow twigs this weekend and then I was thinking about some works of art I’ve ever seen. Now I’m still searching, but in the meantime I came across a number of artists who do magical things with this material. Enjoy watching.

This is for example ‘ De Wilgentenenman ‘. Will Beckers from Lommel (BE) is an internationally renowned artist. He lives and works among the trees and has not stolen his nickname.

He won the ‘Art at State Prize’ in Groningen in 2020 with his
He was trained as a ‘master in organic art’ and became a builder of visual installations. Will Beckers’ sculptures measure the size of wooded environments, with which they often merge.

But you can find his work in many more places than you might think. From living exhibitions in Belgium at the Verbeke Foundation to Germany, Spain, Portugal. .. Be inspired.
