Self-taught sculptor Edward Waites, born in 1988, is from Suffolk, UK.  Waites has created a portfolio of works depicting a wide variety of animal subjects, including some primates.  His works are produced using the ancient lost-wax method, and caste in bronze and silver.  Sculptures range from small-scale to life-size.  His “Silverback Gorilla” is a prime example of the power and energy that characterises his sculpture.  Waites has exhibited world-wide, with works in private, public and corporate collections.
