About the Artist
Dominic Albinski was born in South Africa in 1975. As a young boy, he started sculpting at the Art Classes of Mercia Desmond, in Johannesburg. From the moment he began, his talent for capturing movement and character in his human, and animal figures were remarkable.
His passion took him to study sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and with the British Sculptor, James Butler, in England. There, he learned observation and techniques that would stand him in good stead later, when he returned to France, as a Professor of Communication at the renowned Ecole Francaise D’Attache de Presse near the Champs Elysees. He had his first major exhibition at the Arnaud Gallery in Verneuil Sur Avre in Normandy.
“Art has the ability to heal both mentally and physically: the artist as well as his audience. I get enormous force and peace of mind from sculpting, as well as inspiration from other artists, work.” – Dominic Albinski
