Biography

Odile Kinary was born in 1945 in the Belgian province of Limburg. She studied Plastic arts the Art Academy in Ghent. After graduating, she followed her passion for literature and became a high-school language teacher. Her deep understanding of poetry later found expression in sculpting. Kinart was heavily influenced by African art and pre-Columbian cultures. Although she originally achieved fame thanks to her ceramic sculptures, she started to prefer working with bronze in 1995 – furthermore, she has recently started using glass and polyester in her productions. Her sculptures have been on display in various exhibitions in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Canada, and the United States.


Sculpture works

Odile Kinart’s bronze sculptures have always radiated a feeling of refined sensitivity, mixed with elements of irony, inner peace, and elegance of form. Her sculptures talk to us, they take us by the hand and make us feel as if we were pieces of the artwork. She is currently held as one of Europe’s most famous artists – a title she has achieved thanks to her many exhibitions and appearances at international contemporary art fairs.
