Yasser Ballemans was educated at The School of Fine Art and Design St. Joost in Breda (BA) and for his MA he studied at The Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam, graduating in 2007.
He works with sculpture, installation and performance and has exhibited widely in galleries, museums and in public space in Europe and Asia.
In 2010 he won the Grand Prize at the International Biennale of Contemporary Ceramics in Vallauris, France.
Ballemans' commissioned work, for the public space, include the Dutch municipalities of Hoogeveen, Nieuwegein and Rotterdam. Mostly these works are big metal sculptures. They always contain elements of his abstract-ritual-form language. Additionally he tries to turn the sculptures into monuments with a semi functional role in their environment. His sculptures in Nieuwegein, for instance, function as vases for flowers and plants. One of the sculptures is a meeting place with a small bench. Ballemans' autonomous work is frequently shown in museums, galleries and artist initiatives, such as Kasteel 't Nijenhuis van Museum de Fundatie, JOEY RAMONE and Onomatopee.
