Michael Talbot is a winner of the highly prestigious Landseer Prize from the Royal Academy and is one of today’s leading figurative sculptors.
Born in Staffordshire in 1959, his initial fascination with clay began with studin pottery at art school. After completiing a BA Hons degree in Sculpture he gained a scholarship to the Royal Academy London for postgraduate study in 1980, winnning the Landseer Prize in 1983.
Michael was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1997. The inspiration for his work has always been the human form and its dramatic poetry; along with his exceptional skills, this makes his work individualized and intricate.
Michael creates the original clay sculpture which he then casts into bronze, uniquly finishing and patinating each sculpture. This process is wholly under his control allowing him to enhance and refine the final image. The wonder of sculpture is its abilty to be a solid form that can be seen, touched and walked around – and yet remain an object of pure spirit.
