Sculptor Andrian Melka specialises in creating figures, busts and portraits in stone and bronze. He has over 35 years’ experience working on commissions and restoration projects in both the UK and the United States.
Whilst Head Sculptor under the renowned carver Dick Reid OBE, he carved a relief of Laocoon which can be seen in The Royal Gardens at Highgrove and carved the relief of the coat of arms placed at the base of Philip Jackson’s equestrian statue of HM in Windsor Great Park. Andrian’s work can also be seen at Chiswick House gardens in London where he was commissioned by English Heritage to carve a copy of the Medici Venus from a 1.6-ton block of Portland stone for the top of the empty Doric column as part of the restoration process and at Bamburgh Castle where he created the Figure of Christ on the Cross for the newly restored War Memorial.
Andrian is a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) Scholar and member of the Art Worker’s Guild and The Society of Portrait Sculptors.
