Dr. Seuss - Bronze Sculptures
Artist Leo Rijn, the inaugural
sculptor for the Dr. Seuss Tribute Collection I, was selected
to launch this project due to his prized work with some of today’s
top talent in the world of film, entertainment and the visual arts
(including Tim Burton, Ang Lee and Steven Spielberg). Rijn has
been identified as one of today’s brightest sculpting talents
because of his ability to breathe life into the written word and
successfully transform two-dimensional ideas into three-dimensional
works of art.
Universal Studios commissioned Leo to develop and oversee the creation of numerous maquette scale models for the Monumental Dr. Seuss Sculptures at Seuss Landing in Orlando, Florida. Leo was instrumental in the art direction for many of the sculpted characters and buildings now on display at this permanent Seuss attraction.
His strikingly accurate Seuss works embody a masterful and intuitive Seussian sensibility, establishing him as a leading talent in interpretive sculpting.
