Michael James Talbot is one of the leading figurative sculptors of our time, creating beautiful, evocative works of art that captivate and inspire. He started his career after gaining a scholarship for post graduate study in 1980 at the Royal Academy Schools, London. There, he was awarded the Landseer Prize in 1983. He studied further at The Sir Henry Doulton Sculpture School under Colin Melbourne ARCA and Dame Elizabeth Frink RA and was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1997.
He says, "The human form gives me an endless source of inspiration. The subtlest of movements and expressions can be captured in the sculpture to portray a myriad of emotions and convey tension, drama, fluidity and grace. No other subject has this richness of emotional and spiritual content or the capacity to convey such a broad and interesting narrative."
