Gus Farnes is an award-winning sculptor based in the United Kingdom, who has exhibited in both solo and group events nationally. His work explores the human condition and is heavily influenced by the concerns of our times which include geopolitics, the mass movement of people, alienation, and the environment. Most of his compositions are cast directly in bronze, as the original is sculpted from combustible and natural materials that disintegrate during the process.
Gus cast his first bronze at the age of 16 which led him to Norwich School of Art in 2000. After leaving Norwich, he joined Sotheby’s as graphic artist, where he learned more about art and the art market.
In 2016 Gus left Sotheby’s and London to pursue his practice as a sculptor, setting himself up in a studio and foundry located in Suffolk.
His sculptures have been acquired for private collections throughout Europe, the US, Asia and Australasia.
