Description

Theo Mackaay has been a renowned international artist for more than 35 years and he is the creator of one of the most famous sculptures in the Netherlands, The “Gouden Kalf” of the Dutch Film festival.

He completed training at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and the State Academy of Fine Arts.

Theo sculpts and paints and his style can be described as “deformed figurism”, inspired by Pablo Picasso, Marino Marini and Ossip Zadkine.  He has developed his own style where existing shapes are distorted to such an extent that the image is no longer realistic: “You don’t see my figures on the street,” says Theo, “they are references to the archetypes and to the archetypal.”
