Andrew Sinclair MRSS is recognised as a master of world-class figurative sculptor.

Andrew’s recent public commission is The Duke of Wellington's Regimental Memorial Sculpture, unveiled in the centre of Halifax, Yorkshire in May 2019. For more information please visit: http://www.andrew-sinclair.com.

The 16ft sculpture commemorates all those lives affected by the work of the Regiment – the soldiers, the families and the community. A trade-mark feature of Andrew’s work is his ability to not just replicate the image of a person or people but to bring them to life and tell their stories through visual narrative and unparalleled sculptural techniques. The memorial celebrates the 300 year history of the 'Dukes' regiment and has become a centre of attraction, treasured as much by the community as the regiment themselves. Recognised as a great work of art, and nominated the Halifax Civic Trust Award for its beauty and importance to the town.

Adding narrative makes the sculpture so much more than just a person’s replica.”  Unique in his approach as a commissioned sculptor, Andrew creates more than just a visual replica of a figure. Rather he endeavours to explore the story behind the person, placing them within their history and environment. 

Andrew’s life-size bronze sculpture of David Bowie was unveiled in The Market Square, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire on 25th March 2018 to great acclaim. It was a world-wide media event with the news of the unveiling broadcast as far away as Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada.

The world’s first David Bowie tribute sculpture tells the story of Bowie’s life and features two life-size figures, the main figure of Ziggy Stardust leaping in the air, singing into a microphone, with a more mature standing figure of Bowie looking down benevolently at his former incarnation. The design features a background bas-relief depicting 13 portraits of Bowie’s many personas throughout his career. For more information please visit: http://www.andrew-sinclair.com.

Following the recent sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we can now release information and images relating to Andrew's bas-relief sculpture of Queen Elizabeth II for The Royal Box at Ascot which had to remain secret during her reign. Working closely with The Royal Mint, Andrew's bas-relief of the young Queen was a profile image chosen by her. It will be an honour to see it placed at the entrance to the Royal Box, even though it means she is no longer with us.

Andrew’s impressive catalogue of work graces distinguished historical properties and public places such as the Royal Box at Ascot and Crosby Hall (Sir Thomas More’s old palace) in London and multiple commissions for the late publisher Felix Dennis. Working to commission during his 30-year professional career, his sculptures are in collections across the globe and encompass all genres of sculpture: from historic bronze re-creations for public spaces and private commissions, commemorative portraits for museums and industry magnates, to award-winning Imaginary Realist work showcased in Spectrum - a yearly compendium of the world’s most accomplished fantasy artists.

Andrew is a very rare person in the sculpture world: his skills and talents extend across every aspect of the sculpture process, from the design, sculpture, moulding and casting, to engineering and installation.

The growth of The Sculpture School, which Andrew co-directs with wife Diane (also a sculptor), is an important development in his career. Andrew's passion for sculpture and drive to share his professional knowledge and unique sculpting system, is aimed at teaching figurative sculpture skills to future generations of professional sculptors - something that has been lost within the established art education system.

His first book 'The Professional Approach to Sculpting - the human figure' was published on 31st July 2017. 
There has not been a book on realist sculpture techniques with the same level of detail for more than 100 years since Edouard Lantéri wrote his seminal books in 1911.

The debut book has already been acclaimed by leading artist and sculptor Wendy Froud, who said: “Andrew Sinclair’s book, The Art of Earth and Fire, is a revelation. His techniques for teaching the complexities of anatomy, proportion and muscle structure are the clearest and most precise I’ve ever had the pleasure of discovering.Each easy-to-follow step in the process of sculpting a human figure is explained and demonstrated in great detail and in a way that truly helps one to understand how and why a human body looks and moves the way it does.”

She described it as ‘an essential book, to refer to again and again’ and added: “I will certainly be recommending it to my students.”
