Tobias Martin was born in 1972 in Wiltshire, 12 miles from Stonehenge. Influenced by his idyllic rural upbringing, and the forces of nature and magic that permeated his childhood surroundings, these works have something of the mystical about them.
Each piece is approached with precise observation and an acute interest in the minutiae of the subject matter, manipulating the material with a delicacy and lightness of touch. Despite being realised in heavy materials such as bronze, the resulting piece achieves a sense of movement and character that conveys the essential spirit of the animal.
Inspired by the work of Grinling Gibbons and Alfred Gilbert, Martin combines centuries old techniques with modern technology and materials.
He has sculpted professionally for artists, film sets and exclusive interiors, as well as participating in numerous shows internationally including in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Switzerland, Turkey, UAE, UK and USA.
