Describing herself as an urban glass and inventive mixed media artist, Dutch born Gonny van Hulst aka GonnyGlass is taking traditional glass-making to new artistic levels and bringing it into the 21st century. Her fascination for street art and its context within the urban environment is reflected in her wry style and subject matter dealing with social issues and urban symbolism, translating this to her multimedia works, focusing on glass, a material that in itself is very much a representative of urban life.

Very much interested in the experimental possibilities of glass-making processes, Gonny combines this ancient medium, using a range of traditional and contemporary techniques, such as lost-wax casting, stained glass and screen-printing with enamels and often includes a mixture of other materials in her works. She creates work based on themes that are fundamental to her artistic motivation, such as reactions to real life events resulting in work that is both bold and seductive; enticing you in only to leave you intrigued and amazed at how something that is often so unsettling can be made into something beautiful.

Gonny grew up in the Netherlands and has lived in the US and Norway before she  moved to London where she achieved a first class BA degree 3D Design in Glass at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, and has undertaken artist residencies and private commissions in the England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. She has been awarded several grants and awards, including Friends of North Lands Creative Glass, Malta Arts Fund and Public Art Project by Solum in connection with Network Rail and Rolfe Judd Architects. Her work has been documented in catalogues and has also been featured on the cover of InkStyle Magazine. She exhibits her work both nationally and internationally through galleries, as well as major art fairs, including Netherlands, UK, Germany, Tenerife, Ibiza and is affiliated with galleries in London and the Netherlands.
