Spanning from the trenches of the marble quarries with Michelangelo to the expanding frontiers of America, the legacy of the Ghiglieri name continues in the prodigious sculptor and painter, Laran Ghiglieri. Succeeding the notable careers of great grandfather Batista Ghiglieri, who carved the regal marble lions that herald the edifice of the New York stock exchange, followed by his grandfather’s colossal sculpture of a Franciscan priest, located in Bakersfield, California.
Most recently his prolific father, Lorenzo, who in the spirit of peace presented his holiness Pope John Paul II, the King of Spain, and former Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev with his Conception of Saint Frances of Assisi in bronze. Lorenzo’s Majestic Eagles have been presented to former Presidents of the United States, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Senior, and William Jefferson Clinton. These sculptures now adorn our nation’s White House. Later, under the apprenticeship of his father, Laran collaborated and coproduced hundreds of paintings and sculptures.
As a world class master sculptor himself, Laran Ghiglieri follows in his family’s tradition of quality and excellence through the visual arts. His spectacular sculptures range in theme from historical, sports, wildlife to patriotic. In his bright and endeavoring career, Laran Ghiglieri has his own “Reflections of America”, two eagles wrapped in the American flag, on permanent display, both in our nation,s House of Representatives and the Oregon Air National Guard. His unique and creative spirit does more than compliment his family’s legacy of skill and craftsmanship. Laran’s artwork captures a dramatic glimpse of life in a timeless pose where motion is implied, expression can be read, and motives understood.
Competition, pressure, skill, achievement and the pursuit of perfection directs Laran’s new series of works. Caught in their dynamic action of sport, Laran captures a moment of intensity as a golfer in mid swing looks for that perfect shot. Laran has cultivated his own following and has contributed too many spectacular moments in the United States, Japan, and South America. This includes some of the world’s largest bronze sculptures. One of which is a bronze eagle standing over 33 ft. tall and weighing 14 tons. Another is a heroic size elephant which is 19 ft. tall.
At an early age Laran developed an ability to sculpt with confidence and true accuracy, producing clay animation short films and illustrated children’s books. This started Laran on a journey where the destination didn’t seem as important as the path that takes him there. “Creating is a way for me to connect with the aspects of life that I believe in and respect”, says Laran. By the time he was 19 years old, his sculptures had already surpassed the $60,000.00 mark in terms of individual selling price. His sought after and timeless masterpieces will increase in value for the discerning collector and will remain in the hearts and minds of generations to come.
Laran’s work is showcased in galleries from Naples, Fl to Sisters, OR.
