This ArtFest will feature one of America’s most gifted sculptors, Mauro Pozzobonelli. He crafts rich tapestries of clay that resonate with the weight of human history. Mauro’s wall reliefs evoke the joy of discovery and of uncovering a precious artifact from a lost civilization. Be it early Venice, Ancient Egypt, or the Roman Empire, each piece is a time machine capable of transporting viewers on a romantic journey into the past.
Mauro Possobon Pozzobonelli won Le Salon Bronze Medal in 2010. This prestigious award was given by Le Salon des Société des Artistes in the Sculpture Category. Mauro Possobon Pozzobonelli was chosen from a select group of talented Sculptors to win this award for “ The Greatest Puppeteer”. This was his first year exhibiting at this prestige venue.
About the Artist:
Mauro Pozzobonelli has been a sculptor for over 40 years. In that time he has created over 3,000 individual portraits, inspiring monuments, numerous private commissions, and a collection of impressive relief artwork using a perfected technique developed from a life spent in sculpting. Mauro was born to struggling Italian parents. Like many Italians, his family emigrated from Italy to Brazil in search of prosperity and good fortune. Through childhood play and youthful dreams, Mauro created his first simple sculpture by age 7 and fell in love with sculpting. He has since dedicated his life to history, sculpting, and the fine arts. He studied in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and then later in Florence, Italy. He has spent a lifetime absorbing art and life in order to hone his craft.
After receiving numerous accolades in Italy, most notably the Benvenuto Cellini Award, Mauro moved to America in search of his own prosperity and good fortune. It was in America that his nickname, “Sculptor to the Stars”, came to pass. His life in America led him onto commissioned sculptures of celebrities such as , Anthony Quinn, Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Julio Igesias, to name a few.
It was also here in America that he created a new medium and technique that would allow his collectible to be unlike anything else. His technique and artistic vision would bring about an undisputed mastery of sculpture and excitement for history. He was able to transcend art unto a new dimension; that of time and timelessness.
Mauro Pozzobonelli’s now lives in South Florida. He continues to do commissioned artwork and exhibit at art shows worldwide. Mauro imbues each piece with his lifelong love of history and architecture, creating art unlike anything available today.
Mauro’s work is highly sought after by art aficionados, collectors, and private contractors. Come to the Lake Worth Beach ArtFest and explore the true power of timelessness.
