Michael Wilkinson is one of the few sculptors working with such material as acryl. Acrylic is a transparent material with optical properties similar to the faceted crystal. It has the glamor of crystal and some benefits not available to any other material.

Therefore, only a dozen sculptors from the global elite run the risk of working with acrylic.

He says: “the Beauty and grandeur of the human spirit inspire me.., they – my spirituality”.
