Incredibly Lifelike Wood Sculptures by Bruno Walpoth

Bruno Walpoth is an Italian sculptor from Bressanone-Brixen in South Tyrol, Italy. The talented woodcarver was recognized early in life for his artistic talents, beginning a five-year apprenticeship to master carver Vicenzo Mussner at the age of 14. At 19, he began a six-year course of study with Hans Ladmer at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich, Germany, which Walpoth describes as crucial years in his career.

To learn more about the artist, there’s a great interview on the Sculpture Review. You can also see much more of his incredible artwork on his official website walpoth.com, where you will also find upcoming exhibitions and a list of galleries representing his work.
