Belgian sculptor Olivier Strebelle talks with a group of American writers in his home/studio outside Brussels in January 2009.

Olivier Strebelle (20 January 1927 – 29 July 2017) was a Belgian sculptor. He was born in Brussels on 20 January 1927.

His monumental (usually bronze) sculptures adorn many public places in Brussels as well as in Germany, Israel, Italy, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United States.

Strebelle was a knwon artist for more than 65 years, and his works are found in private collections and public settings around the world. His style has evolved from robust, organic abstract forms to the sinuous lines seen in Athletes' Alley, on the site of the Beijing Olympic Games.

His sculpture "The Abduction of Europa" (French: L'Enlèvement d'Europe) has been on display in the Square of Europe, Moscow since September 2002.

Strebelle died on 29 July 2017 in Brussels at the age of 90.[1]
