Self-taught, instinctual, Bruce Little sculpts to capture the spirit of the wild African creatures he has observed and guarded for most of his life. His technique captures the essential movement and attitudes of his subjects. Born in South Africa, Bruce developed an early passion for the African wilderness through his childhood spent in the bushveld. He became a conservationist and professional game ranger, working at the famous private game reserves of Londolozi and Singita in the South African bushveld. He explains: “I sculpt to honour the animal for what it is, not for what it was.” Bruce, whose sculptures range from miniatures to life size, has exhibited internationally with his bronzes in collections on all five continents as limited editions and private commissions. Bruce is now a full time sculptor living in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Bruce has exhibited extensively in the UK, including in the Cork Street galleries.
His 2015 exhibition will be held at the prestigious Mall Galleries from 28th September to 3rd October 2015, with a preview drinks evening hosted by the Animal Art Fair on the Thursday 29th of September from 6:30pm onwards. Please Contact Us if you would like to attend the preview night.
