Bruno Sibona

ArtHouse, 1 Laura Place, , SY23 2AU

I am inspired by Japanese, Maori, Melanesian, Central-American and European prehistoric arts.  My intention is to perpetuate the inheritance of these artist-craftsmen of ancient times. However, these figurines are also the product of an intense emotional investment and are endowed with their own personal voice, even perhaps magic powers.
