Australian artist Bruno Torfs crafts wooden figures that live in the forest. These fantasy sculptures are life-sized and feature delightfully unusual characters. Torfs incorporates the natural landscape into his art, using tree branches and leaves as a part of his subjects’ hair or body. After carving, they remain unpainted and blend in with their surroundings.
Torfs wooden sculptures convey an incredible range of feelings. He communicates love, joy, and sadness through tiny and subtle details. These figures mirror difficult emotions we face, and his work is a symbol of compassion and a source of comfort to those who use nature walks for reflection.
His work has become so popular that he and his family have moved from Europe to Australia to open Bruno’s Art and Sculpture Garden, where it is on permanent display.
