Life for Stefan Savides is about birds and art. He has never worked a day in his life that he was not recreating birds in one form or another. Stefan worked his way to the top of his taxidermy profession internationally. It was his mainstay for most of his adult life. From a young age, Savides has painted, carved, mounted and sculpted birds.
Sculpting in bronze is a natural progression from his taxidermy, as it provides a lasting expression of his knowledge of avian anatomy and design. Years of intense study coupled with a flair for simplistic design equates to sculptures that capture the essence of his subjects in tasteful, clean works of bronze art .
Stefan’s talent could be measured by his accomplishments in the art world, which are many and have spanned a life-time, however what is more important is the essence of his life. From a young adult he has built a thriving career in art ‘outside the box’. It is the blessed few who are born into this world with a passion that was not to be interrupted by the complexity of the modern day we live in. He has embraced a total connection to the beauty and teachings of nature, which has guided his choices at each crossroad he has encountered. The common thread which binds his life is birds, and his work embodies the fruit of that journey.
