Art: Kendra Haste, “Royal Beasts at the Tower of London”


Kendra is a contemporary animal sculptor working with the medium of galvanised wire.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1998, she has established a significant reputation in her field with work included in collections world-wide.

“The apparent ordinariness of wire and wire mesh belie, provide expressive potential  ideal material for my sculptures. Drawing is integral to my work as an artist and is perfectly matched by the linear qualities of wire.”

PicMonkey Collage kendraShe is a member of the Society of Wildlife Artsists (UK) and a signature member of the Sociey of Animal Artists (USA). Public sculptures in the United Kingdom include an elephant at Waterloo Station, London and thirteen works at the Tower of London, commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces in 2010.

 What interests her most about studying animals is identifying the spirit and character of the individual creatures. She tries to create a sense of the living, breathing subject in a static 3-D form, attempting to convey the emotional essence without indulging in the sentimental or anthropomorphic.

Kendra has been represented by Patrick Davies since 1998 and together, they developPicMonkey Collagemmm commissions, projects, exhibitions and other initiatives. Footprints of London, a professional guiding association have voted “Royal Beasts” at the Tower of London one of the top 20 animal sculptures in the Capital.
