Carved in a Forest By Bruno Torfs

Imagine this: you spend a lifetime creating the perfect sculpture garden and then you lose everything… This is the incredible and inspirational story of Bruno Torfs: how it all started, how he lost everything and how the best came out when things got really dark. Bruno Torfs was born in South America and lived there with his family till the age of fifteen. At this point the whole family made the move to Europe in seek of new opportunities. After working as a sign writer Bruno made a gradual transition to become a fulltime artist. Through his diverse talents and a spirit for adventure Bruno created a unique style full of culture and character. This was achieved through his many trips around the world. Sketching the scenes and faces of his journeys allowed Bruno to return home and make oil painting and sculpture versions of his experiences. These artworks would then be sold in a series of annual exhibitions hosted in the lower levels of the family home.
