The sculptor Lucien den Arend has lived and worked as a sculptor in the United States, The Netherlands and in Finland. He is now setting up a sculpture park - Penttilä Open Air Museum (POAM). His sculptures will be installed in the fields and forest around his house and studio in Kangasniemi, Finland.

Nearby, in the municipality of Haukivuori he is setting up an international sculpture park FOAM (Finnish Open Air Museum) with sculptures by sculptors from around the world. In the summer of 2005 the first symposium took place - REDUCTIVE ABSTRACTION Less is more again. Six sculptors from Turkey, Bulgaria, the United States, Belgium and Holland participated and made sculptures which are now presented on the grounds of FOAM and Saksala ArtRadius Art Center.

In the early seventies the sculptor became a member of the Dutch Sculptors' Association and was asked to join the board. He was twice secretary and president of the association for about fifteen years, and a member of the board for a total of twenty two years.

In 2003 he and his family moved to Finland where he now has a studio next to his home in the middle of the vast forests of the Lake District. He is now a member of the Finnish Association of Sculptors. Around his home, an old manor, his sculptures are installed - in what used to be its gardens.
