Collection: Silvio Apponyi

Silvio has been sculpting for around 40 years. His style has developed over these years, from entirely abstract creations still used in fine details and larger pieces, to an astonishing level of detail and realism, visible in the images on this website. His main inspiration is Australian fauna, and he hopes to draw attention to these unique and often endangered species. In his self built studio Silvio creates his sculptures in a variety of media, primarily wood, Australian granites & marbles and bronze. His scupltures range from delicate ‘Netsuke’ style pieces to massive public granite works.

Silvio began carving at an early age and was awarded the Sculpture Prize in his last year at High School. He then did a 4 year Diploma of Fine Art at the South Australian School of Art, majoring in Sculpture. Upon completion he was awarded a German exchange scholarship and he spent a year in the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. When he returned to Australia he continued to develop his skills and in 1982 devoted himself fulltime to his art.

Since then he has had one-man shows and group exhibitions locally, interstate and overseas. He has won several prizes,accepted commissions, conducted workshops in Australia and Malaysia, and studied wood-block printmaking under a Japanese master.
His work is featured in many private collections both here and overseas and in public spaces across Australia.
