Architect, designer and glass artist. Bořek Šípek sipek was one of the leading artist in the eighties and influenced many young artist . Named the father of Neo Baroque and together with the designers of Memphis Bořek Šípek he first became famous for his glass designs. He was presented in the Netherlands by galerie Steltman and it was at one of the first exhibitions held in the gallery that i met the artist. The interior furniture in the Steltman gallery , (Spuistraat location), was specially commissioned by Steltman and some of those were produced in a very small limited editions. This was the start of the exhibitions by Steltman resulting in many more exhibitions and over 200 signed and numbered editions. On more than one occasion Sipek worked together with Erwin Olaf who at that time started to make a name as a photographer and this friendship resulted in some remarkable books.
Some of the books on Sipek are available at www.ftn-books.com. For some very special Sipek/signed items contact me, because i have some glass works and the very special Kronos set for sale.
