David Tomlinson - Bronze Sculptures

David Tomlinson was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and after finishing school obtained a graphic art diploma.

He joined the advertising industry in Johannesburg, and whilst pursuing a successful career enjoyed ceramic sculpture as a hobby. After a few successful exhibitions at the Everard Read Gallery, David decided to leave the advertising industry to pursue his interest in sculpture and he and his family re-located to the KZN Midlands.

There he began exploring with bronze and soon realised that this was his medium of choice. His subject matter was varied but wildlife soon became his main focus.

The medium of ceramics was limiting due to its fragility, and consequently frustrating. David then experimented with bronze, which became his medium of choice. Numerous solo and group exhibitions followed and his work and recognition went from strength to strength. The subject matter of his sculptures was varied, but wildlife became his main focus.

Today, his works are in private collections in the UK, USA and Europe, and feature extensively in main South African corporations.
