Johannes Nielsen’s art celebrates life and its beauty. He creates bronze sculptures that depict both the inner soul and emotions, as well as the physical appearance of the human body.
About the artist
“I am fascinated by the contrast between the material and immaterial aspects of human existence and how they relate to each other. My creative process usually begins with using 3D scanning to obtain a basic image of my own body, which then serves as the foundation for my artistic expression. I then shape and sculpt digitally until I have a virtual model. Afterward, I physically print out the model and cast my sculptures in bronze. I love the metal, a material that demands mechanical and technical solutions, contrasting with its natural and organic properties. My sculptures combine traditional and contemporary craftsmanship to express my personal vision of reality.”
