anamarenko (pseudonym of Henri Van Herwegen, born in Antwerp, February 5, 1940) is a prominent assemblagist in Flemish sculpture. Panamarenko studied at the academy of Antwerp. Before 1968, his art was inspired by Pop-art, but soon found an interest in planes and human powered flight. Starting in 1970, he developed his first models of imaginary vehicles, planes, balloons or helicopters, in original and surprising appearances. Many of his sculptures are modern variants of Icarus. The name Panamarenko is supposedly an acronym for Pan American Airlines and Company. In 2005 he retired from art to promote his own coffee-brand, PanamaJumbo
