A native Californian, Richard MacDonald - american sculptor, was educated at the prestigious Art Center College of Design and received a Bachelor of Professional Arts, Cum Laude.In the 30 years of his artistic career, Richard MacDonald has achieved international distinction for his sculpture, paintings, and drawings, and has been the recipient of many national and international awards. He has also held numerous one-man shows and exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe and the Orient. His fascination with the human figure and human emotions has led MacDonald to focus on sculpting figures of mimes, dancers and athletes, each of which conveys a sense of joy and pays tribute to the beauty of the human form.
MacDonald's long association with 'Cirque du Soleil' resulted in a gallery partnership at the 'Bellagio' in Las Vegas, that will strengthen not only his reputation as a modern master, but also the desirability - and price - of his sculpture. His "Three Graces" sculpture - a forty foot column - has been chosen to be the center piece of The World Expo 2010 sculpture park in Shanghai, China - the only 'Westerner' to be invited to exhibit.
