About Ernest Bessems

Ernest Bessems (1996) is a Dutch artist that works across sculpture, drawing, painting and  performance. After finalising his architecture degree Bessems continued to work on the scale of architecture but predominantly shifted to the form of the human figure. In his practice this human figure represents an organic and emotional intervention in a built environment that is marked architectural perfection and indifference. Bessems currently works and lives in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
