Wim van der Kant (1949, Kampen) is a selftaught artist. Next tohis busy profession as a teacher at a high school, he intensively practises his profession as a sculptor. Only when his work would measure up to his own standards, he decided to present it to the rest of the world. In 1995, he exhibited for the first time with Morren Galleries. Since 1995 his work is represented exclusively and successfully by Morren Galleries. Van der Kant desires to sculpt young people who still stand uninhibited and curiously in life. The anatomy of his figures testifies of perfectionism. Van der Kant's subjects show similarities with the sculptures from the Greek and Roman antiquity, where youngsterswere admired for their vitality and naivety. The sculptures of Van der Kant were amongst others presented at the KunstRai Amsterdam, Lineart Ghent, AfaRosmalen, Haf The Hague, Haf Utrecht and the annual Realism fairs in Amsterdam.
