Artist of the moment………..Don Rambadt


Don Rambant is a fantastic sculptor renown for his work with birds. Don Rambant was born in the year 1950. Rambant loves to work with birds and states that the subject matter fascinates him to no end. Rambant attended the University of Wisconsin where he studied biology and illustration. Rambant also studied printmaking in Italy.


Rambant is based out of Wisconsin.

In this clip we view a great interview from 2009:

Two of my favorite animal artists are Bob Kuhn and Charley Harper. Both were great at taking the very complex anatomy of the animal and simplifying it. Rambant takes their ideas and applies it to sculpture. In developing his work the artist talks about making a design using the first image that he gets whilst looking at something out of the corner of his eye.

Similar to my favorite Inuit artists, I enjoy the use of negative space in the birds by Rambant as well. The addition of  basic geometric shapes in addition the sense of “air” we get from the style he sculpts, gives the artist’s work a wonderful sense of a creativity.  Rambant is my favorite bird sculptor as I love his mix of reality and use of his artistic license to create wonderful works for us all to enjoy!


Artist of the moment……Isaac Kahn


Isaac Kahn is wonderful sculptor who works with the figure. Isaac Kahn was born in Lithuania in the year 1950. Isaac Kahn attended the Art Institute of Jerusalem where he mastered the arts of drawing and painting.

Kahn also attended school at the University of Plastic Arts which is located in Montevideo, Uruguay. It was here that Kahn learned to sculpt.

The artist employs some elements of Cubism in his art, on drawings and paintings showing one form depicted from multiple angles.

In addition to painting and sculpting, Isaac Kahn is also an avid printmaker.

A link to the website of Isaac Kahn:

I enjoy the abstract forms Kahn makes of his female figures. By working with the same figure seen from multiple angles, Kahn captures the beauty of the curves of the female form.
