Marcel Julius Joosen
Marcel Joosen is considered by many to be one of the best sculptors of male nude in the Netherlands. His perfect mastery of the techniques and his traditional visual idiom meant he played an important role in the emancipation of male art. His statues offer the viewer a sensual experience, they asked to be touched. Marcel always uses life models for his work, often refugees from African origin that he meets during his teaching. Physical beauty, but also strength and appearance, form the basis of his work. Marcel's sculptures are always portraits and the diversity of the genre continues to fascinate him.
Marcel Joosen (1943) was educated at the Academy in Eindhoven.
