Elliot Channer

Elliot is influenced by the animal sculptures of Rembrandt Bugatti and Antoine-Louis Barye. He focuses on capturing the life and grace of the subject, concentrating on their key features but allowing spontaneity to make up the main body of the sculpture.

 

Largely self-taught, Elliot takes inspiration from the countryside, initially in Staffordshire and Derbyshire, Elliot now travels the country in order to observe and photograph animals in their natural habitat. Alongside lifesize sculptures, he also scales down large animals creating more manageable sculptures.
