Vadim Tuzov


The inspiration for Tuzov’s work stretches back to a childhood fascination with wild animals developed while growing up in a small village outside Kiev known for its large forests, extensive wildlife and horse breeding. 


 Tuzov attended a Junior School of Art, before going on to study drawing and sculpture at the National Academy of Visual Arts and Architecture in Kiev. He began sculpting full-time in the late 80s and later moved to Ireland with his family, where he lives with his wife and two daughters.  He has his own studio and foundry in Co. Wicklow and singlehandedly casts and patinates his own work.


Vadim Tuzov’s bronze sculptures are located in many private collections in Ireland as well as in Western and Eastern Europe, Asia and the Americas.
