Each sculpture that is beautifully made by Richard Cooper Bronze is a work of art, and to create a work of art you need a very talented artist. We are proud to be able to display each of these fine craftsmen below who inject love and devotion into every sculpture they create. From carefully highlighting fine details, to researching how certain species move to create character, every sculptor is a master in their craft.
Please see below for a short biography of each Sculptor.

David Geenty attended Art College in Johannesburg where he was introduced to the work of Moses Kotler a world renowned South African sculptor.

He chose to concentrate his talents on equine study, carefully mimicking the movement of these powerful animals in his unique pieces seen today.
