Giuseppe Palumbo's figurative bronze sculptures are textural, warm, spirited works that capture the essence of each being he portrays. His anthropomorphic artworks delve into the human psyche by using irony, wit, and humor. The sculptor views himself as an advocate of tradition with a twist, working with ancient processes and classical techniques while infusing his own style into his art.
Born in Rochester, NY, he began his sculpting career in 1992. Curious and continuously seeking new techniques and teachers, his quest for knowledge took him to Pietrasanta, Italy, in 2005, where sculptors have traveled to since the days of Michelangelo. Palumbo's studies have also taken him to Mexico, South Carolina, Loveland, CO, Scottsdale, AZ, and the Art Students League in Denver. The sculptor maintains studios in California and Colorado, and his work has been exhibited throughout the US, including at Loveland Sculpture Invitational, SoFA Sculpture Show, Santa Fe, NM, Art Expo, NY, San Francisco ArtMkt and San Francisco Art Fair. Palumbo's whimsical sculptures can be found in many public and private collections throughout the US and the world, including Queen Raina of Jordan's private collection.
