Calyxte Campe



“When sculpting and painting I always work directly from life, which allows my work to carry and have greater impact at a distance.
 Working with people, animals and scenery under natural light, never from photographs, I find myself with an infinite source of inspiration.
 I use the constant variety and change in nature to bring life to my work.”

Calyxte trained at the Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence, where he also instructed for several years, and apprenticed in marble carving at Pietrasanta. He spent his childhood with his family on the sailboat "St Michel" circumnavigating the world.

Calyxte has completed commissions worldwide and had solo shows in New York, London, Geneva and Florence. His work also appears in permanent collections including the Dana Center in Washington, D.C., and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
