Over Pim Wever
Even as a child, Pim was preoccupied with drawing and painting. Growing up in the polder, in freedom, amidst the nature in West Friesland, nature is also inevitably his greatest source of inspiration. Furthermore, he is a freethinker with broad interests and a man of imagination, contemplation and action.
Pim Wever (1966) lives and works in the Netherlands. After his initial study of structural engineering, he graduated from the Royal Academy of Art & Design in 's-Hertogenbosch in 1994. He discovered his passion for sculpture while studying at the academy in 's-Hertogenbosch. The combination of his engineering and art studies dovetails perfectly with his current activities. All this has resulted in a diversity of works, most of which were made on commission. His designs range from pieces of jewellery to fountain sculptures several metres high and he is experienced in the utilization and implementation of state-of-the-art techniques.
Pim still experiences it as something very special whenever someone asks him to make a sculpture. In his words: "It's something like a meeting of kindred spirits. The people who commission a sculpture are people with an open attitude and a broad perspective, people who have higher aspirations. In order to arrive at a good design it is very important for me to feel the client's engagement in the process. Without that, the object I make will never really 'come to life'. My line of approach is to be of service. My ultimate goal is always to create a sculpture in which the client recognizes beauty and which exceeds their expectations. For me, making beautiful objects and thereby stirring the human spirit in a positive way, is a matter of survival, it's what keeps me standing, in the midst of everything that's occurring on this earth."
