Hans Van de Bovenkamp is an architectural designer and a sculptor. He has earned an international reputation over the past 45 years for designing, fabricating, installing and maintaining unique sculptures and fountains in collaboration with architects and designers. His works can be seen in public, civic, corporate and private collections. He has executed over 100 commissions. Since 1961, he has been exhibiting all over the world and has had over 50 one-man shows in addition to taking part in numerous group exhibits.

“I find myself working towards an art which includes a spiritual dimension. I have become increasingly aware of art as a dialogue between matter and spirit. In recent works, I have emphasized myth, symbol and dream to evoke an atmosphere in which the sculpture and its environment speak to the subconscious to make the observer aware of the dreamlike nature of life, of which we all are part.”
