Sculptus is an art incubator comprised of three artists. Our origins are from very different worlds with very different life experiences, yet we all share very similar paradigms and philosophies. We have come to work together in order to combine our artistic strengths to collaborate on large conceptual installations and sculptural pieces. By the way of teamwork, we are able to work in any medium and are not restricted to a practice and experience of a single artist. This capability enables us to deliver truly tailored solutions and address any challenge we may encounter.We are all professional visual artists living and working in Canada with extensive international experiences. As full-time artists, the Team has the ability to fully dedicate its time and resources to large projects. Sculptus takes a completely fresh approach to every project working closely with stakeholders during the entire creative process of Conceptualization to Fabrication and Installation. Sculptus is head quartered in its specially designed, purpose built studio in Cochrane, Alberta. The Team has additional studio spaces in Toronto and Prague.
