Art Brokerage: Odile Kinart Belgian Artist: b. 1945. Odile Kinart was raised in the Belgian province of Limburg and pursued studies in plastic arts at the Academy of Genk. She expressed her passion for literature as a secondary school language teacher. And that sensitivity for poetry would further blossom in sculpted art. Odile Kinart has been profoundly inspired by African art and Pre-Columbian cultures. Beginning in 1990, the Flemish artist became known for her ceramic pieces. Since 1995, the sculptress has favored bronze as a material for her sculptures. The latest evolution is her works in marble and silver. Kinart has exhibited in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Canada and the USA, and is collected in such prestigious collections as Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.
