About

Through this bronze sculpture featuring a gold patina the artist takes us into an imaginative and fantastic world, the image of the elephant on the pedestal reminds us of the circus environment and is linked to childhood memories. In this case the artist took the moment when the elephant gets up on its front legs. This exquisite solid bronze sculpture of an elephant rests on a vintage iron weight base. The sculpture is handmade with incredible details, the artist is able to capture a moment frozen in time but on the same time simultaneously creates both movement and static effects. The animal figurative sculpture inspired from imagination of the artist who has modeled the inert wax cast of the sculpture, which is the soul of the final result in bronze, creating an art piece yet modern and contemporary. His very personal technique is to manually apply each individual little piece of wax until the desired effect is achieved. The final results is a bronze sculptures that is smooth and rough at the same time that interprets the real movements and attitudes of the animal in an incredible way. The roughly modeled raw material recalls the post-impressionist period and brutalist style's sculpture in the manner of Giacometti. The artist is confident with his manuality and with the techniques of working with wax, clay and metal, as well as welding, soldering and shaping rigid materials, the basic skills necessary to work with bronze. This animal sculpture is casted in Italy using very traditional techniques, the noble burnished bronze has now a shiny gold highlights and a great patinated finish. Additional Options At each casting the artist corrects and remodels the mold so each creation is unique. The customer can choose a parcel gilt, burnished or green patina finish to the bronze. The sculpture published is available now, other sculpture needs 30 days circa to be produced. Measures: H 25 cm, width 30 cm, depth 15 cm Short artist’s biographical note: Pablo Simunovic was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1974. He began to draw very young, at the age-child, self-taught. At the age of fourteen he began to attend the Institute of Design "Ricardo Rojas” in Buenos Aires, until the age of eighteen. He moved in 1999 to the United States, in Miami, and here is the crucial meeting for its formation, with the painter Abdon Romero, a Venezuelan painter, director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Maracaibo. In the atelier of Romero, directed together with the painter Sonia Hidalgo, Pablo Simunovic continues his artistic journey, practicing with the practice of drawing, and gains a clear and sure sign in the realization of the shapes and volumes. Currently Pablo lives and works between Florence and Pietrasanta, from painting he approached sculpture by working different materials from marble to bronze, his passion for sculpture often leads him to Pietrasanta in Tuscany, a privileged place for sculptors where he finds inspiration, materials and foundries to create his works of art.
