Van Eeckhoutte

Creating artistic furniture as “cherry on top” for living spaces, while underlining topics like transience, transformation, and purpose expressed in the use of street-found materials as a main inspirator.

Get in touch

Van Eeckhoutte has been fascinated by swords and knives, bows and arrows ever since he was small. The attraction for him comes from the combination of a slick appearance with a dangerous purpose. A necessity brought up in a time when a clawless and fangless people needed to protect themselves against animals that saw them as prey. Afterwards unnecessary in that way, but still integrated in modern daily life in a way that is indispensable. With the use of weaponry, Van Eeckhoutte point to the in his eyes absurd glorification and normalization of violence in movies, games and modern media.

VE Gallery

In his gallery Van Eeckhoutte wants to showcase his work. It is also his wish to create a space (first in Amersfoort and currently in Rotterdam) for fellow artists to show their work too, and for them to organize events where creativity plays a central role.

As a child Van Eeckhoutte often drew skeletons, knights, dragons and other mythical creatures. Drawings on the battles between good and evil. This theme is still clearly visible in his current works. The work of Van Eeckhoutte is varied and is directed by his own ideas and fantasies that come up spontaneously.
