A bronze sculpture by the Danish Sculptor Jens Galschiot 

The artist Jens Galschiot is one of the most active sculptors in European art. He expresses himself in an idiom that extends the classic arts and crafts of sculpturing based on the naturalism. His sculptures are often characterized by surrealistic twists and an almost organic feel, that makes his sculptures easy to recognize. He mainly works in bronze and copper that is cast on his own bronze foundry.

Galschiot has also taken interest in the installation art and is therefore the initiator of some of the largest international sculpture manifestations. He uses, in this connection, his sculptures as catalysts for a discussion on the conditions of the humanism on this planet. His goal is to brake with the traditional space of art and give life to his sculptures in the real world. You can meet his sculptures in places such different as Hong Kong, a Mexican village, Brazil and in the the art collection of the German state in Bonn.
