BRANDON BORGELT

Brandon grew up in Johannesburg and always had a very keen interest in animals, collecting all kinds of weird and wonderful pets, from snakes through to monkeys. At the age of fifteen he moved to Durban where he worked part-time at the Dolphinarium and Snake Park. 

 

After school he spent two years in the army and returned to the snake park again. Six months later, restless and full of wander-lust, he took off for the bush where he was involved in a curio venture, game ranging at several private reserves, filming documentaries on lions and hyenas in Botswana and Namibia for National Geographic and the BBC, and eventually wound up managing the crocodile farm at Sun City for twelve years.

In 2010 with his very fertile imagination and creative yearnings bubbling to the surface, he decided to give sculpting a try as it was something that he’d always wanted to do, with his affinity for all things Native American, he sculpted a life-size bust of Fool Bull, (Native American warrior and medicine man ) working from a single photo taken well over a hundred years ago. This figure was cast in bronze and set on.  His passion to create was now ignited and from that point it was all systems ‘go’ – In 2016 he started to pursue his passion full time.
