Sarel Petrus

South African 1977- 

South African-born sculptor Sarel Petrus explores his relationship with the natural world through bronze and wood. The memories collected in inanimate found objects allow his mind to journey into the distances of forgotten secret pasts and imaginable future impressions. After earning a Fine Arts degree at the Tshwane University of Technology in 2004, Petrus spent eight years working in the studio of prolific South African sculptor Guy du Toit. Here, he familiarized himself with bronze casting and set out on an engaging exhibition schedule, winning a Top 10 Award at the ABSA L'Atelier competition and a Sculpture Merit at the Thami Mnyele Awards along the way.
