Walenty Pytel Gallery and Sculpture Tours
Gallery and Sculpture Tours
Walenty Pytel N.D.D. is unique among British contemporary artists. His magnificent individual creations in steel or bronze are drawn from nature and truly give the metal warmth and movement. He is commissioned by Royalty, public bodies, corporations and private collectors alike, whilst creating smaller sculptures for his gallery and special exhibitions.
His work has an international following and can be found in many parts of the world.
Walenty studied at art college for 5 years obtaining the National Diploma of Design. He then spent a year working in a commercial art studio in London. His love for the countryside brought him back to Herefordshire where he set up his own studio and gallery initially working with paper sculpture and then moving onto metal and bronze creating the birds and beasts that surrounded him.
You can visit his own private Gallery, based at his Herefordshire home near Ross-on-Wye. Here you can view and buy his steel originals, bronze sculptures and his signed limited edition fine art prints.
Individual group visits only. Welcoming parties of 4- 20.
Visits by arranged booking only.
The Gallery will be opened especially for your group and the visit includes a short film of the artist and his history through interviews, plus a plan of some further 19 Herefordshire locations where his sculptures can be viewed at your own leisure.
Cost: £12.00 per person.
Further special requirements can be discussed at time of enquiry.
