Profile image of Nick BibbyNick Bibby: A Sculptor`s Life

A bright and artistic child, it was clear from an early age that Nick Bibby was destined for a career in art.

Nick Bibby’s sculpture is imbued with such life and character. His affection for his chosen subjects shines out for all to see. It is truly rare to find an artist with such a talent for modelling.

Sculpture description:
Small/Little Bronze Hippo bronze sculpture/statuettes with mouth open gaping and roaring. Bronze works well with this wild Animal of Africa. and Nick Bibby catches that typical moment of power and strength with seemingly effortless ease, which is so deceptive. You can see that he is regarded as the best in informed circles
See also othe wild African animals by him.
As well as his Barn Owl, Black Panther, Black Rhino, Goshawks, crested Grebes, Pheasant, Tigress etc.
Artist's comments:
Another of my favourite animals. Hippos are just, spectacular! Almost balletic underwater, but as powerful as a rhino, and with that fearsome gape! I exhibited this piece at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, where it proved rather popular, so obviously I`m not the only one who loves Hippos!.
