Biography from The Marshall - LeKAE Gallery:
Jim Vilona’s education and training as a sculptor has been influenced by his extensive travels to such exotic places as Thailand, Bali, Brazil and the Amazon, as well as Europe and Central Africa.  Natural inspirations and philosophical reflections combined with his travels and relationships have inspired Jim, and he seeks to blend them into each of his pieces of sculpture.  He has spent a great portion of his life training horses, and his horse sculpture communicates his deep affection for the beauty and grace of the animal.

Through his continuing studies in gemstone and mineral sculpture over the last 28 years, Jim has developed a keen eye for detail and understands what emotive elements occur through the balancing of color with form and content.  Creating smaller scale sculpture or monumental pieces, Jim’s process of design and artistic interpretation draws from similar principles.  Jim’s fascination with color as a vehicle to communicate artistically has brought him collaborative engagements with monumental artists in France and Italy.

Utilizing precious metals or silicon bronze, Jim’s ultimate desire is to evoke emotion and inspire communication and appreciation.  He currently is working with The Public Seating Project in designing bronze artistic sculpture that will enhance public spaces and inspire communication between artist and the observer.  The Public Seating Project (PSP) is a privately sponsored organization whose mission lies in making art more accessible to the public.  It is the goal of the PSP that publicly placed works of art, both interactive and functional, will encourage the public’s enjoyment of art through incorporating artistic works into their daily lives.

Vilona was born September 11, 1955 in Chicago, Illinois.  He was admitted to The University of Colorado in 1975. He was a member of the National Ski Team until 1979.  He served a formal Sculpture and Gem Cutting Apprenticeship until 1983.   He has had education apprenticeshipa in Africa, Italy and Bali.
