Tim Roosen was born in Sint-Truiden, Belgium, in 1972.
Blacksmith and metalsculptor.
His current body of figurative work consists of 3 series: ‘Angels & Demons’, life-size heroic warrior women, ‘Dark Army’, a series of masks and ‘Asylum’, a collection of twisted creatures.
All sculptures are made of a variety and combination of metals, such as mild steel, burnt copper, stainless steel, cast bronze and aluminium.
Inspired by an overdose of Sci-Fi movies in his youth, tons of fantasy literature and more weird dreams than he cares for, his sculptures have a definate dark, warrior-like feel.
Metal, a cold and lifeless material, is cut, hammered, shaped and welded into organic, living creatures of dreams and nightmares.
“Self-taugh artist, MAG and TIG welder, dreamer and illegitimate son of Hephaestos. Let Tim Roosen take you into his strange world of angels, warriors, demons and androids.”
