Guy Portelli RBA will be giving a talk Making it as a Sculptor in the Learning Centre from 2pm to 3pm
Followed by a demonstration in the main gallery of mosaicing on 3D surfaces from 3pm to 4pm
Guy worked as a sculptor in the special effects dept for the BBC TV before setting up his own studio in 1981, producing sculptures for the advertising market.
"My first opportunity in the world of fine art sculpture was being commissioned to sculpt 13, 9ft classical sculptures for The London Pavilion, in Piccadilly Circus, London.
Having gained a reputation for Classical sculpture, I wanted to promote the more creative aspects of my work, and set about exhibiting my abstract sculptures in galleries, sculpture parks, Manchester Art House, Sausmarez Manor in Guernsey, and a major London show with Andrew Logan."
