William Sweetlove, born in Ostend, Belgium, in 1949, unites dadaism with surrealism and pop art in humoristic sculptures that at first sight may seem “kitschy”. However, closer familiarity with his works reveals their role as a creative antidote to the overproduction and over-consumption of our society.
With his cloned animals William Sweetlove calls for greater ecological awareness and urges us to reflect on the consequences of the climate change challenging humanity. His cloned dogs wear boots since the sea level rises and the penguins carry water bottles since we are running out of drinking water.
William Sweetlove has had exhibitions at art fairs, galleries and museums all over the world. His works are found in several private art collections. He has also participated in different art manifestations worldwide together with the Italian Cracking Art Group.
The community of Borås in Sweden acquired the sculpture “Cloned Frogs on Gala Dress” to their impressive sculpture park in 2010 and dedicated it as a wedding gift to Their Royal Highnesses, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince Daniel.
