German sculptor Nando Kallweit produces figurative bronze sculptures and reliefs with aquiline and a graceful modern appeal. Kallweit is inspired by seemingly disparate cultures; the strength of ancient Egyptian sculptures, the dynamic forms of the modern Cubist movement, and an observation of our contemporary and future existence. Combined with a considerate approach, Kallweit renders archaic materials, such as blackened oak and bronze, with a palpable sensitivity. These forms are varied tirelessly in his creations.
This 3.5 inch tall unique figurative bronze sculpture is named Austin. Each of Nando's individual figures are named according to their distinct personalities as visualized by the artist. This work is created using the lost wax method – with the ceramic mold shattered in order to reveal the bronze figure. Such process renders each artwork completely unique. This sculpture can be placed on any flat surface. Kallweit's unique sculptures can also be grouped to create a harmonious display.
Affordable local Los Angeles area delivery as well as Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
Close observation of each piece leads to the discovery of unexpected details in the design which convey an emotional robustness. Kallweit moves continuously while creating his sculptures. He works with an intensity and energy that he must balance with a sensitive and considerate approach. Kallweit’s work is permeated by a longing for the unknown, for the elusive, the divine, and the spiritual. The visual impact of his metal sculptures leave a deep impression on the viewer.
After completing engineering school in Germany, Kallweit began a successful career as a freelance sculptor. He currently lives in Essen, Germany. His work has since become coveted for public installations and private collections alike internationally.
