Bronze sculpture details
Here, as in other works by the artist, Safronov’s skill in creating a “frozen” moment filled with tension is displayed: his victor has been laid low, but in just a blink of the eye it will stand back up.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Vitali Safronov had already got a degree in art education and design in his home town of Omsk before continuing his studies at the State Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart. Among his most important academic teachers were Henning Seemann and Giuseppe Spagnulo. Safronov has been working freelance since 2003.
