Urs Twellmann discovered his true vocation in 1997 when, after a period at the Visual Arts School in his native Berne, he took off for America and the Art Students League of New York, before completing his education at the Manhattan Graphic Center. Today, photography and sculpture are his preferred means of expression. Inspiration for his sculptures comes from the objects and installations which he experiments with in his studio-laboratory. This is where the wood reveals its nature and the future works begin to take shape.
He shapes and sculpts with a chainsaw, stopping only when he is convinced, beyond any doubt, that the piece has reached its finished form. Twellmann’s works come in all sizes, have been exhibited on every continent and won numerous awards.
