Tom Frantzen studied monumental sculpture at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture et des Arts visuels de La Cambre, in Brusssels.Living in Brussels, he describes himself as a contemporary Flemish fantasy artist. His public projects are part of this culture in an interactive way and animate the existing environment of both the city of Brussels and elsewhere.
Fanny Rodwell who owns one of his works, personally chose him to create Hergé's sculpture which was unveiled on May 22nd, the anniversary of Hergé's birth. The Hergé Museum is devoting an exhibition "rencontre imaginaire" to Tom, which includes a series of bronze animal sculptures which echo an Orwellian world, as in Animal Farm, with comics.
FREE ACCESS to the temporary exhibition in the Atrium where a small number of sculptures are displayed.
