Blair Buswell

Blair Buswell has always been fascinated with the human figure. He likes the challenge of capturing the gesture, mood, and expression of a person in thought which brings a sense of life to his work.  Blair has also studied the skilled athlete in action and has used his artistic talents to sculpt famous sports figures of our day, including Jack Nicklaus, Oscar Robertson, Doak Walker, and Paul “Bear” Bryant. 

Blair enjoys sculpting a wide variety of subject matter in a range of sizes. His pieces are displayed in museums, private collections, college campuses, sports complexes and fine art galleries nationwide. In Oklahoma City you can see two of Blair’s monuments; Mickey Mantle at Redhawks stadium as well as Charlton Heston at the National Heritage Museum. In 2014 He installed two monuments honoring the Texas A&M Marching Band and Corps of Cadets at Kyle Field in College Station, TX.

Along with his figurative work, he has now sculpted mules, oxen, horses, and other animals.  He loves the old west and is excited to have had the opportunity to permanently capture its spirit as exemplified by the early pioneers.  In 2014 he was asked to add to the overall story of the frontier in Omaha, which will be another multi-year project, the majority of which will represent the Native Americans of the area.

A member of the Northwest Rendezvous Group, Blair is also a Fellow and board member in the National Sculpture Society, and serves on the board of the Utah Arts Council.
