Chris Hunt

Chris Hunt is a nationally recognized sculptor and one of the very few who specialize in bronze and marble sculptures. His realistic portrayals of the West’s past and present figures bring their unique stories to life with remarkable detail and drama. He has a breathtaking flair for capturing and evoking emotion in every work, ranging from Western to classical figures. His work has been sought after by individual collectors, corporate installations, TV personalities, and even heads of state.

His artistic journey began in 1993 when the United States Air Force stationed him in Spangdahlem, Germany, three hours from Paris, France, and the Louvre Museum. Growing up in small-town Texas, Chris had read about the Eiffel Tower and Paris in textbooks, but not much more, so he did not know what was in store when he decided to visit the City of Lights. When he entered the Louvre, the sculptures by Michelangelo, Bernini, Barye, and Rodin were greater than he could have ever imagined. His experience in Europe and the masterpieces that filled the Louvre and Rodin Museum made Hunt dream of artistic achievement.

After returning from his tour in the Air Force, Hunt quickly translated the inspiration he brought home from Europe into Western art, winning Best of Show awards, People’s Choice awards, and several Best Sculpture awards in shows and museums. He also has been featured in magazines such as Cowboys & Indians, Western Art Collector, and a feature publication for NSide Texas.
