Meet the minds behind IFCA
Figurative arts
We can carve hyper realistic and fantasy sculptures in sand, snow, ice, concrete and plastics. Each material comes with its own opportunities and challenges we can tell you all about.
From portraits to scenography
Our visual artists can create stunning paintings, beautiful theater backdrops and mesmerizing murals. You should definitely check out some of their work down below.
Architecture at its finest
We love to design buildings, houses, hotels and theme parks. Intergrating art and style results in a powerful synergy which will make your building come to life! We have a rich background in architecture and design and have helped create buildings all over the world.
We can organize and promote any creative event for you.
Let us take care of the logistics, the coordination of the sculptors and the artistic part. We will help you find the right balance between resources and the final result. For us the most important part is to create an event that has a future.

IF Creative agency

The way we work isn’t limited to just carving statues in sand or ice, designing edifices or decorating murals. We fully exploit the technical and creative possibilities offered by each project to lead to true artistic experiences. The interaction with both the environment and the visitors or users, is essential in our unique approach.

We have  more than 20 years experience in the field of sculpting, constructing, painting and organizing artistic events. We’ve been lucky to travel all over the world to create anything you can imagine. This has helped us acquire a lot of knowledge of a wide varity of artistic, organizational and technical principles.

As a team we’ve been working together for many years. We are complementary and efficient since we all have our own specialty. Besides our team, we also have a big network filled with other specialists and technicians which we can ask to join a project if needed. This allows us to complete each project with great efficacy.

By adding flexbility into the mix we can adapt ourselves and our creativity to many situations. This results in an ad hoc approach which allows us to create anything you have in mind.

'The museum is a world class art museum of some of most impressive sand sculptures around the world. Leonardo collaborates with the museum since the first edition. Enguerrand David, Leonardo Ugolini and Marielle Heessels, each of their skills creating sand sculptures is highly world class, and the combination of their works is brilliant.' 私が手がけている砂の美術館は、世界中の美術館の中で砂像彫刻を展示する最も優れたワールドクラスの美術館です。 レオナルド氏は、砂の美術館第1期の展示から制作の中心的な存在として一緒に仕事をしてくれました。 マック・デイヴィッド、レオナルド・ウゴリニ、マリエレ・ヒーセルス、この3氏はそれぞれ世界的にも高い砂像彫刻の制作のスキルを持ち合わせ、特に彼らの仕事の組み合わせは目を見張るものがあります。

'I met Leonardo through the Italian Ministry of Culture. I sent a letter requesting an Italian sculptor who could participate in the world championship and made me the name of Ugolini. In 1998, in the only edition in which he participate, he won the first prize in the architecture section, the first prize for technique without formwork and third prize in the sculpture section.'
Bruno Giannotta
Organizer-President of the world championship of sand sculptures
'Marielle is a well balanced sculptor, with a great sensitivity for human form.'
David Ducharme
Visual Artist & Sculptor
'I have worked with Enguerrand & Leonardo since 2014. At that time, we cooperated together to finish a fantastic project which is considered the first and largest Sand Sculpture Festival in Vietnam. Both Leonardo and Enguerrand are one of the best and unique artists I’ve worked with. For all of my respect and trust to Leonardo and Enguerrand, I guarantee that working with these artists will be truly worth your while and an unforgettable experience.'
Tuan A. Le
CEO of Phan Thiet/Dalat Sand Sculpture Park in Vietnam
'I worked with Enguerrand & Leonardo on a very important project that consider the first and world’s largest Sand Theme Park, Remal International Festival Kuwait. Their professional approach to problem solving, dedication to work and commitment to successful partner relations has made this project a great success. It was a pleasure working with them.'
Yousef Aldaour
Producer of Remal International Festival
'When Enguerrand came in we did not really know what to think about him, but I have to be honest he is a brilliant, patient and gifted guy who made one of our most beautiful monuments in our project: the Norwegian Stave Church. We enjoyed working and talking with Enguerrand and appreciated his judgement highly. Leonardo came in silently and before we were aware of it, he took the responsibility of one of our biggest sculptures and guided an enormous architectural monument: “Egypt”. We consider him as a strong but if necessary flexible artist with a huge talent to oversee his work. In smaller as well as in larger projects he worked with a lot of patience to cooperate with several other artists. We are very thankful for his effort and his leading talent in our project “Zandverhalen” in Elburg.'
Adrianus Peters
Director of Zandverhalen
