Curriculum

Born in Sydney, Australia, in 1959, Gil Bruvel’s French-born parents moved the family back to the south of France when he was 4 years old. While taking drawing lessons at age 9 and learning sculpture basics, Gil made the decision to spend his life creating art. He began working with oil paint at the age of 12.

 

Gil’s father, being a cabinetmaker, introduced the budding artist to the inner workings of a wood workshop including furniture design, its practical function, and every aspect of hand crafting each piece. Taking this knowledge and experience with him, Gil began studies at an art restoration workshop 1974, spending the next three years learning the techniques of the Old Masters and modern Masters of contemporary art. Thereafter he set up his studio in St. Remy de Provence until 1986 when he first made his way to the United States, making it his permanent residence in 1990.

 

At that time, he started to experiment more with sculptures in bronze and stainless steel, mixed media as well as continuing to learn about creative processes in artistic expression.  Gil is currently creating paintings, sculptures, functional art, and large commissioned public art for his many clients all over the world.  His state of the art studio in Texas has full 3D technology capabilities including six in house 3D printers, a complete support team, and solid working relationships with two foundries in Texas and one in Hangzhou, China.
