Originally born in Peru, sculptor Oswaldo Merchor has lived on the Norfolk coast for the past 50 years. As a lover of the natural world from childhood he was delighted to discover upon moving to the UK the love and respect that the British people held for their wildlife.
Oswaldo is particular drawn to birds and uses them as his main sculptural inspiration. He fondly remembers time spent birdwatching in his childhood saying, “I can only say that being in their presence I felt that I was part of their spirit.”.
Oswaldo is completely self-taught in technique and design and devotes long periods of time into the research and study of each new project to ensure that each piece is a skillfully crafted work of art. He works predominantly in cast bronze and bronze resin, his skill as a sculptor capturing the lightness and delicacy of his subjects.
