Benoît Luyckx is a French contemporary artist, of Belgian origin, born in 1955. He graduated from the Ecole Boulle in 1976, and then he continued his studies in the Beaux-arts in Paris, before devoting himself totally to sculpture, henceforth travelling from quarry to quarry. Thus, he discovered the famous Carrara marble in Italy, as well as that of Belgium.
Following the periods of his career, his works are modernist, architectural, spiraled, vegetal or organic… Thus, recently, he is tending toward softer and more sensual forms, some of which, thanks to a play of ovoid openings, summon the impalpable, while others sublimate feminity.
He has worked, among others, for Hermès, for Chanel’s headquarters in Neuilly-sur- Seine, for Moët & Chandon, HSBC, Vinci etc… He has also carried out other monumental works for public or private commissions, such as those for the Palais de Justice of Evreux or the French Embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He exhibits in various galleries in Europe, and has several times been exhibited in the USA. He is part of important private collections, as well as several Foundations. More recently, Benoît Luyckx was present on several European art fairs (BRAFA Brussels, TEFAF Maastricht), and exhibited at the Berès gallery in Paris, as well as at the Grand Palais on the occasion of the exhibition “Hermès A Tire d’Aile– Les Mondes de Leila Menchari”.
