Celebrated Belgian sculptor and contemporary craftsman, Nick Ervinck (1981) combines top-notch technology with abstract design, traditional concepts of sculpture art and virtual futurism.
As gatekeepers of the New Ark, Nick Ervinck created a series of two sculptures, TANATILSUR & TANATIRIUB, that needed years of preparation and research to be designed.
A first and unicum, the sculptures are 3D printed by the pioneering Stratasys, giving rise to artworks that would, by all rules of nature, be impossible to imagine and to create.
TANATILSUR & TANATIRIUB
by NICK ERVINCK
"I am a futurist who is dreaming about the future. I create imaginary dream images as windows in a possible future."
On the edge of the digital revolution, Nick is as much a visionary artist as a shamanistic rule breaker. Collected all over the world, his morphing sculptures and inconceivable mask mutations continue to impress and fascinate.
As an artist, Nick is expressing a deep unconscious desire to merge nature with technology, creating a new kind of harmonic creature, a human reintegrated and dramatically transformed by its environment as a last hope for survival.
Manga, yet Moore, his work is a projected ever changing hallucination and an expression of the classical rules of the art carved in stone.
