He has been awarded the ‘Médaille d’or de l’Académie des Arts’ and the ‘Chevalier de l’Ordre International des Arts’ for his unique and accomplished works of art. He is a master in the moulding and casting of aluminium and bronze sculpture.
Christian Maas works in a traditional way, though not always producing traditional results. Maas is renowned for his eccentricities and sometimes risque subject matter. His work is focused predominantly around two main themes, femme being his female representations including those of Grace Jones, Marilyn, and Kate Moss. He also recently has created a number of bronze and aluminium animalier sculpture which are often life size. He has also created a range of distinctive pieces of furniture that are artworks unto themselves.
From his atelier in France his sculptures have found homes worldwide and his work has been commissioned for many public monuments including a formula 1 racing car that resides in Monte Carlo.
Christian Maas exhibits throughout Europe, the Middle East and the USA and his work has been auctioned by famed Auction House Christies of London. Sculptura® is the exclusive dealer in Australia and New Zealand of Maas’ work.
