French Bruno

Biography

Glittering and opulent, the French Bruno collection represents a marriage of art and design at both its most luxurious and its most engaging.

Exquisitely hand carved from fine ceramic, aluminium or bronze, gilded in 24 carat gold or encrusted with thousands of SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS, every unique piece tells a different story in its own distinctive voice.

Conceived and created by celebrated Austrian artist J. Leitner, AKA French Bruno, each of these exclusive works of art has a value which goes beyond the artistic or the material, as each one represents his passionate commitment to international culture, beauty and style.

French Bruno was born in Graz, Austria in 1977. Extensive travelling from a young age forged his creative path, transforming him into a person who loves change and new experiences as much as he does constancy and stillness. Visiting a diverse array of countries all over the world opened his mind to other cultures and lifestyle, colours and shapes, and inspired him to express his fascinating experiences and ideas through art.

Over the last decade, French Bruno has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions in his home city of Graz, as well as in Salzburg, Vienna, Kitzbuehel, Munich, Miami and Venice. Having spent much of his life so far on a global creative expedition, he has now settled in Austria. With his new studio, Atelier rosenGarten, he has finally established a space in which his creative work can flourish and he can fulfil some of the demand for his work in other parts of the world.
