          Solomon Saprid’s humble beginnings traces back to his career as a scientific and textbook illustrator before he became known for his Brutalist School sculptures  of welded metal scraps.  His genius incorporation of media and space has allowed him to concoct such brilliant imagery with his subjects.  Themes that allude both real and mythic come alive in his masterful renditions, as the Modern Master  captures his subjects without foregoing any figurative intricacy.

          In this creation, a very distinct Mother and Child — one of the artist’s endeared subjects — is again featured in Saprid’s sculpture.  His signature media of brass, melded with his powerful approach to form is expressive of motion; its dynamics are natural and lively in all its visual grandeur.
