Milo was born in Paris in 1939; Milo lived most of his childhood in Andalusia, Spain. Influenced by an artistic family background, he began sculpting at the age of seventeen. After apprenticing with several accomplished sculptors both in America and Spain, he began his own work focusing equally on steel and bronze. Horses and other animals were a natural direction of his work to follow. As a child he was surrounded by horses and witnessing the fighting bulls of Spain gave him an instinct for the inherent drama of these animals. Combining a special cement mixture with steel has allowed him the fluidity of metal with the timelessness of stone. This process enables him to capture the essence of the animal’s nature. The characteristic rough texture and movement of line make Milo work easily identifiable in both cement and bronze. Virgin Islands, however, an additional charge may be required.
