About Us

“A sculpture is just a painting cut out and stood up somewhere.” ~Frank Stella Sculpture is an art of creating objects featuring a person, thing or an idea using materials like terracotta, stone, clay, wood, metal etc. The primitive art has been updated with new forms and has a course of evolution. A sculptor has expertise in carving the man-made or natural objects into art pieces. Sculpture has its roots in folk arts, religion, traditions and culture. It is the visual expression of three dimensions in a solid form. It is different from painting due to the three-dimensional feature involved in it and thus calls for intensive training. When creating a sculpture different methods like modeling, molding, casting, carving, etc. are used.
