About Nigel Konstram

Nigel Konstram is a renowned sculptor who studied sculpture, drawing and painting at Camberwell School of Art (1956-8). Since then he has been working as a sculptor and teacher. He works in stone and in wax for bronze. Nigel’s work is firmly based in the European tradition. His book “Sculpture, The Art And The Practice” (Collins '84)” was praised by critics for its 'lively, knowledgeable and stimulating discussion on the nature of art and the way an artist's mind works--marvellous chapters which deal in depth with imagination and creativity, structure and composition.’

Nigel Konstram is the owner and founder of the Verrocchio Art Centre, a private art school which he has been running from past 27 years. Verrocchio Art Centre is a beautiful hill top village of Casole d'Elsa, Siena, Tuscany, Italy which offers art courses, painting holidays, sculpture courses, school trips at certain times, studios and accommodation. Here is the description of the beautiful art centre form Nigel himself- “As I sit on the terrace where the vines and climbing shrubs are putting out new growth along the pergola I can look across the valley to the beautiful hills of Chianti and truly feel that the Arts Centre is a dream come true. Not only I who live here but many of our visitors describe it as 'Utopia’.”

Nigel’s teaching has led him to a number of discoveries which are important to artists. His teaching aims to provide a sound basis for personal vision. His courses are designed to develop the powers of observation, stimulate the imagination and enrich the student’s appreciation of art. They are suitable as part of a general education as well as for those whose aims are professional.
