French sculptor specialized in figurative and realistic sculpture. He works mainly with materials such as bronze, plaster and resin.
Before devoting himself fully to the art of sculpture, Eric Vanel studied engineering and worked for 20 years in the automotive industry. However, it is in 2008 that he discovered his passion for sculpture, and it is in 2013, thanks to the influence of other sculptors, that this passion turns into a true vocation.
Eric Vanel is fascinated by the language of the human body, the face and the emotions that are expressed in it. He draws his inspiration from photos or illustrations that evoke a particular emotion in him. From this emotion, he begins the creative process, seeking to build and tell a story in three dimensions.
