Inspired by the natural world, meet the artist who works with natural clay and wax to produce figurative bronze sculptures.
Andrzej is a sculptor based at our Bow Road studio site, where he practices every stage of his work from clay to silicon to wax to ceramic to metal, producing breathtaking and detailed pieces.
“I am a figurative bronze sculptor. I was born in Poland where I grew up and studied Fine Arts. I came to the UK to continue my education and pursue an artistic career. I have a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts in the faculty of Sculpture.”Andrzej Szymczyk
“The natural world has been a great source of inspiration for me and my passion towards it was one of the factors that led me to the arts. My practise has been evolving consistently in accord with my personal life and development of the language of sculpture. I work with natural clay and wax which I then cast into bronze utilising ‘lost-wax casting’ technology. The qualities of this medium enable me to express my art accurately.
Due to the complex and time consuming process of producing bronze sculpture I work on several pieces at a time. You can see the sculptures that I am working on at the moment on my instagram page.”Andrzej Szymczyk
