Bruno's Art & Sculpture Garden

Take a look at the images on this post. All these are from the Art & Sculpture Garden of artist Bruno Torf. Bruno Torf created this sculpture in the small Victorian village of Marysville near Melbourne, Australia. This garden is hidden among the trees of rainforest and creates a whole new world of fantasy, beauty and humour. With over three hundred paintings and sculptors, Bruno's Art & Sculpture Garden is one of the most important attractions for art and garden lovers in Australia.

The story behind this unique garden:

After several years of this lifestyle, Bruno and the family made a decision to pack up and move to Australia to create a sculpture garden that he would run as a permanent attraction. The family arrived in Melbourne and shortly after had found the perfect place in the small Victorian village of Marysville. The luscious sub-alpine forests of the surrounding area were the ideal setting for Bruno's plan and luckily the property he purchased he a large section of rain forest attached. Bruno with 'Sadu'After five months of backbreaking work Bruno's art and sculpture garden was opened to the public. Also on the property was a gallery that housed over 200 of his artworks brought over from Europe that included oil paintings, sketches and smaller sculptures. The garden began with just fifteen life sizes terracotta sculptures, today there are over one hundred and fifteen pieces on display and Bruno is still making regular additions. The unique experience of the garden and its wondrous inhabitants attracts thousands of visitors a year. Bruno and the family still live there and always take great pleasure in being able to share their magnificent art treasure with all that come.
