Guy Portelli is a South African born sculptor now living in the UK.
I noticed some photos of his works on flickr and the bright cheerful colours really appealed to me. He has worked for the BBC and started by building his reputation in classical sculpture. Since then he has literally moved to bigger and brighter things and has been recognised by being elected as a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1998 and voted onto the Council in 2000.
He frequently incorporates mosaic in his pieces.
Some of Guy Portelli’s work is currently on display at the Leicester University Botanic Gardens until September 2006.
