about Robin

Born in Ieper, Belgium –  September 11, 1974.

The artistic talent  of Robin Uzeel manifested  itself early in his childhood.

At the age of eight, he already took art lessons with painter Noel Vandorpe.

Between the ages of 12 and 18,  he attended  the Art Academy in Ypres, where he studied Graphics Arts and Painting.

Thereafter,  he furthered his studies (among others) in horticulture and woodworking after which he went to Eindhoven, Netherlands  to  study Dendrology (tree surgery).

Robin represents the seventh generation of the Uzeel family dedicated to professional tree care.

In 1998 he started his artistic career with figurative wooden sculptures.

However, he quickly evolved into abstract sculpture due to his  fundamental respect for trees and their living character.
