Rolf May (born 1956) never wanted to be anything other than an artist. As a boy, he spent every free minute in the Studio of the painter Rudolf Fuchs. He found a job as a harvester and rags, sold a picture here and there and conquered gradually all artistic techniques up to the bronze casting. After his Mediterranean study trips, he worked in Paris, Munich, and Pasadena, California and had numerous exhibitions in Germany and the United States. Since the 80s Rolf May turned to the fantastic art.

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.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

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.
