Gil Bruvel is a visionary artist, capable of translating complex ideas and fleeting impressions into stunning works of art.
His art emerges from a deep contemplation of images, emotions, and sensations, which he refines continually before he casts them into material form.
Gil Bruvel was born in Australia, but raised in the South of France.
His father, a cabinetmaker by profession, taught him furniture design and wood sculpting. Once he gained these skills, he began his studies at an art restoration workshop in Chateaurenard, France, where he learned the techniques of old and modern masters.
It was here that he got a chance to enhance his knowledge about wood and within no time was crafting portraits in wood.
Bruvel’s work displays a mastery of technique and high-level craftsmanship.
His sculptures in bronze, wood, and stainless steel, as well as his functional furniture and mixed media, all reflect a well-defined move towards three-dimensional representation.
A look at Bruvel’s works makes it evident that this visionary artist is certainly capable of transforming his unique ideas into stunning works of art.
