Johan Creten discovers the hidden power of earth behind ceramic's apparent fragility. He favours this polymorphic technique since 1984 and has developed since then the art of metamorphosis. The artist uses glazed stoneware, in particular for works of large size. His works seem to have escaped from fairytales and become symbolist wonders. They suggest the grottos of the Renaissance, where rules an artificial Nature, Arcimboldo's and Bernard Palissy's mannerism and also the curiosity cabinets. As a leading pioneer in the revival of modern ceramics alongside Fontana and Schutte, Johan Creten continues to influence a generation of young artists.
Johan Creten is a Belgian ceramic sculptor born at Sint-Truiden, Belgium on 1963. He lives and works in Paris, France.
