Who is Jesse Nusbaum?
Jesse Nusbaum is a sculptor from Connecticut best known for creating realistic bronze animals.
His commitment to fidelity is displayed in a unique technique he developed to highlight surface details. The resulting sculptures appear so lifelike that viewers have reported feeling like they have “experienced a face-to-face encounter with the actual animal.”
“I strive to replicate the actual subject,” explained the artist during a recent interview, “utilizing micro-detail encourages an intimate, close-up view.”
