Jesse Nusbaum at Art BaselJesse Nusbaum, 29, who maintains a studio in his hometown of Weston, Conn., is a sculptor known for creating realistic bronze animals. “I strive to replicate the actual subject,” explained the artist during a recent interview, “utilizing micro-detail encourages an intimate, close-up view.” Nusbaum’s commitment to fidelity is displayed in a unique technique he developed to highlight surface details. The resulting sculptures appear so lifelike that viewers have reported feeling like they have “experienced a face-to-face encounter with the actual animal.”

In November 2017, Nusbaum was inducted into the Silvermine Guild of Artists, one of the youngest artists to become a member of the guild.

Nusbaum is represented by Zenith Art & Fashion gallery in Miami, Fla., located at 1440 Biscayne Blvd (786-409-8530). Currently, the gallery has 6 of Nusbaum’s bronze sculptures on exhibit.

Nusbaum’s work also has been featured in numerous exhibitions in the tri-state area at venues including Carriage Barn Arts Center in New Canaan; Greenwich Art Society in Greenwich; Mamaroneck Artist Guild in Mamaroneck, N.Y.; Stamford Art Association in Stamford; Martin Art Gallery in Allentown, Penn.; Limner Gallery in Hudson, N.Y.; Ridgefield Artist Guild in Ridgefield, Conn.; and online with, of which he is a member.

His Husky sculptures are on display in the University of Connecticut men’s and women’s basketball trophy cases in recognition of their national championships.

In 2015 and 2017, Nusbaum was invited to have his work featured at Art Basel in Miami, Fla. His work is scheduled to be featured again at Art Basel in late 2018. More exclusively, Nusbaum’s work will also be displayed at Red Dot Miami in December of 2018.

Nusbaum has sold a number of pieces to private collectors in the United States, and most recently, completed an international sale to a private collector in Brazil.

Nusbaum has been selected to work alongside world-renowned artist Fernando Cid de Diego to design and to create a sculpture for a proposed new museum dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr. in Atlanta, Ga.

“I selected Jesse to work with me in Atlanta because I saw in him the same attributes I possess as a sculptor; just not at such a young age. He will make his mark in the art world as a sculptor,” said Fernando Cid de Diego.

World Wide Art Books, a leading art publisher, has selected Nusbaum’s work to appear in two separate editions; “Important World Artists” in late 2018; and also in “International Contemporary Masters,” in 2019. Designed in California and published annually, these books are curated art anthologies presenting select master artists and sold at prestigious venues around the world.

In addition, Nusbaum was selected to have his work published in “100 Artists of the Future” Art Book, by Contemporary Art Curator Magazine, which will be printed in late December and released in January of 2019. “The book’s aim is to seek out the most exciting artists of the future. Contemporary Art Curator Magazine has established its name by curating the best contemporary art from all across the world.”

Nusbaum was also showcased in “The Art Album Live” in 2015, a book published by Dawud Knuckles, the owner of Art on Dekz.

Original Living Magazine’s winter 2018 edition featured Nusbaum’s work in an article titled, “A New Conceptual Art and Fashion.”

• On June 1, 2018, Nusbaum attended and had on display five sculptures at The Arts Bloom in Weston, an annual fund-raiser at Emmanuel Episcopal Church.
