Being one of Belgium’s
most famous artists, Olivier Strebelle is invited to create a
35 meters high sculpture in stainless steel for the central hall
of the new European Parliament building in Brussels in 1989.
In the summer of 2001, he embarks on his biggest project ever,
to exhibit 33 monumental sculptures on the prestigious Place Vendôme
in Paris. This ambitious exhibition
is followed by a show of the sculptor’s work in Luxembourg
(September 2001-March 2002).
Other projects soon spark off: A fountain at Moscow’s
recently constructed Europe square (September 2002) and a few
months later the inauguration of another sculptural fountain,
this time in Belgium, in the city of Courtrai,
called “The Wave”.
From June 2003 until March 2004, the artist exhibited in the
wine cellars of French champagne producer “Vranken-Pommery”
In the future, major projects await the artist in Washington,
New York, Singapore and Beijing.
