If you have ever considered the idea of commissioning a portrait, you will most probably have thought about a painting. You are less likely to have considered a sculpture, not least because a realistic sculptural portrait is so difficult to achieve. It is no wonder that portrait sculpture has been held in such high regard since the age of the Greeks and Romans. There are only a handful of sculptors working today who truly understand the discipline of realism. Andrew Sinclair MRSS is one of the world’s leading realist figurative sculptors creating stunning life-like portraits for his clients.
A person is more than just how they look, however. They are the culmination of their mannerisms, their experiences and their achievements. As a storyteller, Andrew gets to know the person he is working to portray. He works to understand their character, life- story and achievements, so that he can represent his subjects in a dynamic way that is a true reflection of them and a narrative of their life.
