Title: Bronze Sculptor
Company: Jesse Nusbaum
Location: Weston, Connecticut, United States
Jesse A. Nusbaum, Bronze Sculptor at Jesse Nusbaum, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in sculpting.
Upon discovering his artistic passions and capabilities, quite a few people knew of Mr. Nusbaum’s talents, as he was already well known for his athletic prowess. An All-State baseball player recruited by many colleges to play baseball, Mr. Nusbaum ultimately attended Muhlenberg College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in art in 2013. With the intention to study political science and pursue a career in law, the gifted sculptor chose to follow his passion for art. Since making this career move, Mr. Nusbaum has been sculpting, teaching, and mentoring artists from his Weston, Connecticut studio since 2016, specializing in realistic hot-cast bronze animals sculptures. Mr. Nusbaum uses a unique technique he developed to highlight surface details, and viewers of his work have reported it as being so lifelike it appears to resemble the actual animal.
Despite only pursuing art professionally for four years, Mr. Nusbaum has received multiple awards and accolades for his work. In 2017, he was selected as one of the youngest artists inducted into the Silvermine Guild of Artists, and, in 2019, he was selected as a member of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts. He has been featured in Contemporary Art Curator Magazine’s 100 Artists of the Future, World Wide Art Books’ Important World Artists, and International Contemporary Masters. Notably, Mr. Nusbaum has also been nominated by Connecticut Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40, which recognizes high achievers under 40 years of age in multiple walks of life – such as professional athletes, politicians, writers, and others who have made their mark in the State of Connecticut. In addition to these achievements, Mr. Nusbaum has been showcased three times at Art Basel in Miami. In 2018, his work was on display at the prestigious Red Dot Miami venue at Art Basel where he and his gallery, Zenith Art and Fashion, were honored with multiple awards.
Throughout the course of his career, Mr. Nusbaum is particularly fond of the two Husky busts he created for the University of Connecticut’s Men’s and Women’s Head Coaches, Geno Auriemma and Kevin Ollie, in 2014, in honor of their twin national basketball championships. The sculptures are displayed in each of the college’s trophy rooms. Mr. Nusbaum attributes his career success simply to his love of animals, as they are the subject of most of his pieces. He believes that the key to success is to follow your passion, noting that your most successful work will come from doing what you truly love and enjoy. Looking ahead in his career, Mr. Nusbaum plans to focus more on the studio aspect of his work and to begin creating sculptures at a higher volume.
