Serge Gangolf, born on 3 December 1943 in Wegnez, is a Belgian non-figurative sculptor. Serge Gangolf is best known for his monumental sculptures and fountains decorating public places, especially squares and roundabouts.
A sculptor of metal, particularly stainless steel or cast aluminium, which he is particularly fond of, Serge Gangolf was one of the first sculptors to use Corten steel. According to him, “it is a real craftsman’s work”.
He has also worked in concrete, bronze, marble, plaster, ice and stone. His work is characterised by a great simplicity in the purity of geometric forms and a harmony in the relationship between right angles and curves.
In the summer of 2021, he donated to an auction for the benefit of the victims of the floods in his region. During this disaster, La Virgule, his stainless steel sculpture in the old patrician quarter of Verviers, was destroyed by six cars crashing into each other.
