Kevin Francis Gray is an Irish sculptor that creates neoclassical inspired pieces that transcend all conventionalisms.
His technique shows a complete dedication to realism in search for a physical perfection that few have achieved. The meticulously crafted figures lay at the cross roads of real and unreal and open a debate about the current definitions of tradition and innovation. Although his choice of materials, the extreme detail and visual references he incorporates in every piece may come across a conventional, this is exactly where the innovative essence lies.
