Elliot Channer

Sculptor: Elliot Channer - Limited Edition Sculpture:-Elliot Channer Sculptor Artist At The Acorn Gallery, Pocklington

Elliot was born in 1989 in Staffordshire, and showed a passion for wildlife and art from a very young age.

Elliot has been described as one of the 'young stars' of the international art fair circuit by Belgravia magazine, he is influenced by the animal sculptures of Rembrandt Bugatti and Antoine- Louis Barye.

Elliot focuses on capturing the life and grace of the subject, concentrating on their key features but allowing spontaneity to make up the main body of the sculpture. Largely self-taught, Elliot takes inspiration from the countryside, initially in Staffordshire and Derbyshire, but now travels the country in order to observe and photograph animals in their natural habitat.

Alongside life size sculptures, he also scales down large animals creating more manageable sculptures. Focusing his art on British and International wildlife, Elliot's clay sculptures are then cast in bronze, bronze-resin or jesmonite.

Elliot works closely with the team of skilled craftsmen at the bronze foundry in Birmingham where his work is cast using the ancient Lost wax process. All of Elliot's sculptures are small limited editions with each sculpture taking several weeks to complete.
