Frederick Hightower

Frederick Hightower is a master sculptor, muralist, and portraitist whose work captures the emotions of his audience with idealized perfection. His sculptures employ the classical techniques of Donatello and other Renaissance masters. Frederick likes to transform clay into a living work of classical beauty, in line with the highest aesthetics of figurative art.

Although sculpting is his passion, he is not limited to complex large-scale, sculptures, and portrait busts. He is also a skilled realist painter, inspired by Flemish realism, especially the work of Vermeer and Rubens of the 16th and 17th centuries.

A third-generation African-American pastor of an African-American church, Hightower believes that his gift to create things that are beautiful came from the one who created everything. In other words, Frederick was created therefore, he creates.  Every sculpture, painting, or mural Frederick does is a pure reflection of his spirit of excellence.
