Margriet van Breevoort was born in Amsterdam in the year 1990, she studied at the Hogeschool voor de kunsten Utrecht and received her diploma with honours in the year 2013.

Her oeuvre enters a thin line between the exceptional and the impossible and makes the viewer experience an extraordinary world through the use of hyper-realistic sculpture techniques. In her work Van Breevoort tries to emphasize a network of contradictions which include the dialectic between man and nature, the organic versus the technical, and the guilt and innocence. She puzzles about a nature that can only exist under the condition of man and tries to reflect this doubt about what people call nature in the Anthropocene, in her work. Questions about authenticity therefore drive the creation of many of the works she makes. Can we still speak of the “natural” when everything that man considers to be nature has been influenced by and exists by the grace of man himself?
