Heinrich Filter- Sculpture in silver and bronze


Who is Heinrich Filter and what do you do?
I am a self-taught artist and my expertise ranges from wildlife, bird, abstract to African works. Each piece is exclusively sculpted and also chased and finished by myself.

How would you define your style of Art?
Being a sculptor, an ex-safari guide and proudly South African I naturally draw my inspiration from the African bush and our rich wildlife.

With my first collection my aim is for my sculpture to accurately convey the beauty and essence of Africa’s rich wildlife in a classic yet timeless style.

What inspires you and your work?
Africa, wildlife, nature, people
