Don Brown was born in Norfolk in 1962 and studied in London at the Central School of Art from 1983 to 1985, graduating from London's prestigious Royal College of Art in 1988. He became known for the portraits of his wife Yoko. The contemplative calm and delicacy of his figures are a stylistic characteristic. He mainly uses materials such as bronze, colored acrylic or silver. Through his collaboration with Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg, Brown has realized his first work in porcelain. His figurines examine the human body and its individual posture. In contrast to classical sculptures, which embody an ideal image and follow strict iconographic guidelines, Brown's sculptures are committed to an almost naturalistic realism.
