    The Hanover-based sculptor and painter Roman Johann Strobl has made a primarily name for himself with his delicate as well as expressive and cheerful and dynamic wood sculptures among art collectors and gallery owners.

In order to deepen its capabilities, Strobl studied sculpture under Professor Sebastian Cosamale Italian Todi. It was followed by numerous trips to the Middle East, to India and to the roots of Greek mythology in Crete, the sustained inspired the artist in the choice of subjects of his sculptural work.

    Strobl experimented with a wide variety of techniques and materials, where the stone sculpture increasingly at the Centre of his artistic career moved a long time. In 1997 he turned to again forever wood as a means of expression, but no longer with the carving knife, but with the electric chain saw with which he incredibly precise created his objects like no other.

Since the mid-80s, his works are regularly represented at exhibitions in Germany and Austria.

    While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

    The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

    Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

    Cast stone
    Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

    Cold cast bronze
    Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

    ARA wooden copy
    In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

    Ceramic casting
    As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

    Bronze casting
    In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
