A Fusion of Geometric and Organic Forms Inspired by Nature

Assembling "Pine Stone" Six Petal Sculpture

About Me

My name is Herschel Shapiro, I am an artist based in Manila, Philippines.

I create wall sculptures that are a fusion of geometric and organic forms inspired by nature. 3D printing is the ideal media for this art form because it combines both the expressiveness and precision required to merge these two styles.

I was born in San Francisco, California and raised further north along the California coast where beautiful redwood forests meet gorgeous shoreline cliffs. After attending college at UC Berkeley I moved to the Philippines. I live here with my wonderful wife and daughter. The Philippines has the the most beautiful, white sand, blue water beaches in the world as well as the friendliest people you will ever meet. This is the ideal place for me to work on my art and be inspired by nature.

As a child I loved folding paper into three-dimensional stars and many kinds of polyhedra. Later, after I discovered 3D printing, I was able to expand beyond the straight geometric lines of paper into the magically diverse world of organic forms.

Every sculpture I create is crafted with care and attention to detail. I hope you have an excellent buyer experience and if you choose to become an owner of one of my sculptures may it find a happy home and be a beautiful addition to your living space.
