William Sweetlove (BEL) .jpg

WILLIAM SWEETLOVE. Yes, that is indeed his real name! Sweetlove was born in 1949 in Ostend, Belgium, from humble beginnings in the European countryside right after the war. Decades of painting and sculpture have brought him worldwide recognition, and his work, which has been exhibited in over 600 exhibitions worldwide, has delighted everyone from art critics to the very young. From giant schnauzers wearing rubber boots to penguins carrying plastic bottles on their backs, Sweetlove’s cloned animals act as a creative antidote to the mass production of material goods and over-consumption in our society. His sculptures, with their critical undertones, draw attention to contemporary society while maintaining a strong connection to nature, as the artist points out in his statement, "Climate change is the basis of my work."
