Jorg Van Daele
°06/01/1966, Wilrijk (België)
Jorg Van Daele started his sculpting education with sculptor Emiel Uyterhoeven in 1989. Since 2001 he’s been a professional sculptor.
Jorg participated in several symposia (listed below) worldwide symposia (New-Zealand, Cyprus, Egypt, Spain, Austria,…). In 2012 he won first prize in sculpting at the international symposium (AADD) of Pöchlarn, Austria. His artwork is spread all over the world, in privately owned and in public places (Canada, Spain, Germany, Egypt, New-Zealand, Uzbekistan,…).
His artwork distinguishes itself by the way Jorg puts different structures in his work. Most people think the sculptures contain several stones but this is an illusion as it is actually made out of one single stone.
Although at first he made most of his work in Belgian bluestone (or ‘Petit Granit’), lately he also made sculptures in several kinds of marble, limestone, granite,….
In April 2016 he’ll open his own gallery: the New-Jorg Gallery, in which he will have exhibitions of the artwork of international artists along with his own. The N/J\G is located in Kalmthout near Antwerp in Belgium.
