Who is Bruno Torf? He’s an artist, born in South America and moved to Australia after traveling Europe up and down, wanting to bring his dream to life.
The Victorian village of Marysville (95 km from Melbourne) was the perfect place to develop Bruno’s wish to create a sculpture garden. He bought a property (including a generous piece of sub-alpine forest) and after five months of hard work, he opened to the public Bruno’s Art & Sculpture Garden.
Besides having a gallery with 200 artworks (paintings, sketches and small sculptures) from allover Europe, the garden had fifteen life sizes sculptures. That was then, this is now – over 115 pieces and constantly adding.
It seems that fantasy meet real life is becoming a serious trend in artistic circles. I wouldn’t mind having an over night metamorphosis and waking up to a dream world where people stop throwing things everywhere, where for every cut tree, five more would be planted instead, where instead of paying $100 000 for a handbag, donating the same amount for research purposes so maybe, one day, a less environment damaging fuel gets worldwide usage for our vehicles and so on and so on.
But until that day, I’ll just dream about a better future and do my part of environment-consciousness (plus take some time to admire these fantastic artistic creations)…
