Welsh sculptor Adam Humphreys is an artist with a difference.
A third-generation woodsman, he grew up working on the family farm and its adjoining woodland, laboring alongside his father planting and felling trees. A creative mind fuelled by his skill with a saw germinated a seed of an idea in teenage Adam.
Entirely self-taught, now working across a myriad of mediums, each piece is bespoke, whether carved from timber with a chainsaw or metal bent, hammered and welded by hand. With pieces in public and private collections across the UK, Southern Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Adam's work is gaining traction globally. His pieces abound in character, taking on the charm and idiosyncrasies of its subjects which are inspired by an extraordinarily vast array of experiences from across the globe - from working on a horse riding safari in Botswana's Okavango Delta, to climbing Northern America's highest peak, Mount Denali.
Currently living between the wooded valleys of South Wales and the forested mountains of New Zealand's South Island, Adam works closely with his clients to create their sculptural dreams, whilst exploring what can be forged with a blunt hammer and a sharp chainsaw and/or a welder and grinder.
