Hélène Arfi is an artist with a passion for animal beauty and the dynamics of movement.
Trained at the École des Arts Appliqués Duperré and then at the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris, she has pursued a career as a stylist while practicing sculpture. She is currently devoting herself to this art form full time. Her favourite subjects are the wildlife and birds she has observed during her many travels. The artist admits to having a particular fondness for birds. She manages to capture the fleeting moment, the ephemerality of a movement, the beauty of a flight, to translate it into her bronzes with a precise and spontaneous model.
She regularly exhibits in France and abroad. In 2015, she won the Marcel Sandoz prize awarded by the Salon National des Artistes Animaliers and the Evariste Jonchère prize awarded by the Taylor Foundation. Her sculptures are shown in galleries and international exhibitions and are in numerous collections, including the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum (WI) in the United States.
