Abraham David Christian Biography

'Abraham David Christian is an international artist who is best known for his paper and bronze sculptures. Geometrical and shape-of-life forms reference the traditions of Eastern, Western, African, and American cultures, even as they remain perfectly unique unto themselves. His sculptures convene the spirits of Renaissance art (Donatello and Michelangelo), the Classical abstract art of the avantgarde in the twentieth century (Giacometti and Brancusi), the most (so-called) 'primitive' objects from the smallest villages in Africa, and the most (so-called) 'refined' goddess or Buddha from India or Japan.'
