Brian Arthur artwork for sale and artist biography
After completing his studies at Southport College of Arts, Brian Arthur pursued his career at the Burslem School of Design in Staffordshire England, where he spent two years before joining the Rawnsley Atelier in Chelsea London.
Arthur pursued his study of form and structure at the Burstein School of Industrial Design. He worked in a variety of media in France and Italy,... then collaborated with American sculptor Felix DeWeldon on major commemorative public sculptures, including the Iwo Jima and Harry S. Truman monuments in Washington, D.C.
Initially his prefered medium was porcelain, but he eventually turned to bronze and now works almost exclusively in this most durable material. Arthur's bronze sculptures are cast using the lost wax process, polished, then patinaed in rich earth tones. Sometimes resembling fine veined marble, the patina on his bronzes beautifully enhances their composition.
Whether gracefully fluid in motion or magnificently majestic in repose, these sculptures of herons, pelicans, dolphins and more serve as inspiring reminders of the living art that exists all around us. These sculptures are beautifully enhanced by the subtle patinas of browns, silvers, greens and ebonies. Embellished with high polished accents. Each bronze sculpture is a limited edition and signed by the artist.
Brian Arthur works at his studios in the mountains of Southern California and Devon, England.
