As a true lover of texture, structure and colour, Dutch visual artist Paul Odekerken produces work that arises out of a material – most often clay – allowing intuition to guide his sculpting hands towards the final outcome. An established artist in his own right, he harbours a belief that beauty has a way of evoking emotion and speaking to humanity on a deeper level than words ever can.
A maker since early childhood, Odekerken decided to pursue studies in arts in the early 1970s. He attended the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. His long-standing association with Domani has resulted in numerous collections, including Havanna, which was introduced in 2020.
