Van Eck, Gerhard

Gerhard van Eck was born in Cape Town in the late 1970s. After traveling extensively in Africa, he returned to the Western Cape and commenced a career in the construction industry. His involvement in this sector provided widespread exposure to the planning and formation of various structures and medium textures – experience that prepared him well for his sculptural journey.  

Gerhard has devoted himself to the development of his personal approach to figure sculpting – he continuously experiments with different mediums and studies figure movements to better understand the human and animal anatomy. His work has become known for its ability to capture inherent emotion and energy. 

“The process of understanding the movement of anatomy is a painstakingly art that will never loses its magic to me.” GvE 

Gerhard’s experience in the construction industry and his interest in the human figure have resulted in his core focus on human anatomical balance and the incorporation of architectural elements and design. 

Gerhard’s works are on exhibition in several galleries in South Africa and has been sold to art collectors from South Africa and abroad. He believes in the power of art to aesthetically enhance open spaces, whether it is private, corporate or public areas.
