Bart Walter is primarily known for his unique and dynamic approach to surface. His work can be found in notable public and private collections worldwide: be it in the museum, gallery, or zoo. Many unique commissions in bronze sculpture have been sought by collectors and institutions over the years as well. Bart travels extensively to pursue honest interpretations of his subjects, from lions and chimpanzees to more local North American wildlife. Sculpting and drawing directly from life allows him to infuse vitality and spontaneity into his work. Continuing the tradition of earlier animaliers, Bart has transcended their reliance on the taxidermist table and the zoo by sculpting directly from the natural world. Bart’s renderings are derived from a personal commitment to the integrity of each subject. With this holistic view of inspiration, creation and casting, Bart Walter has won the respect and admiration of fine art curators, collectors and the general public.
