Utrecht Competition 2010:
Portrait Sculpt from Life by Anthony Alemany
16 x 14 x10, water-based clay.
Alemany studied and graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design. While at SCAD he discovered sculpture and eventually travelled abroad for a summer course at the Florence Academy of Art. In Florence, Alemany found realist artists from the past and present who exert a kind of beauty and passion in their work that Alemany aspired to in his own. In his work, he hopes to inspire beauty and ask moral questions that will engage the viewer in an intellectual conversation and provoke an appreciation for realism in art. Alemany is based in Maine.
