Walter Moroder (born 1963, Val Gardena) is an Italian sculptor living and working in Ortisei, South Tyrol. The respected Val Gardena woodcarving tradition, his training in the workshop of his father, David Moroder, and his studies with Prof. Hans Ladner at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich have paved the way for his interest in representational art and his careful exploration of the human body, the modelling of wood, and the relationship between figure and space. Core sculptural elements such as physical expression and formative power can be traced in the art and wealth of his experience, and his chief hallmarks are serenity and timelessness.
