Michael Defeo is a traditional and digital sculptor. He works in marble,
bronze, resins and fabric to create figurative works that explore his
experience of the world. Inspired by classic and contemporary artists like Michelangelo, Bernini, Carpeaux, Dali, Giacometti and Dr. Seuss. His work as head of Sculpting at the animation studio Blue Sky, is present in his art as he fuses all these influences into a synthesis of beautiful, disturbing and dynamic forms.
