CHESTER FIELDS – Bronze Eagle Sculptures
Chester Fields has mastered the design and creation of bronze eagle sculptures. His attention to detail has captured the attention of private collectors and businesses around the globe and has set him in an elite group of artists who find success in this challenging field. One reason behind Chester Fields’ success is his passion for wildlife art which he expresses through his bronze eagle sculpture and wildlife art paintings. Born in 1945, he soon discovered his desire to become an artist at five years of age when he started observing and drawing nature. Wide-open landscapes in Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia throughout his youth provided him with inspirational wildlife each time he stepped out his front door. A professional wildlife artist for over 35 years, Chester Fields has spent 25 years specializing in sculpting eagle sculpture. A fine artist by trade, Chester Fields received formal fine art training, exceeding expectations with his drawings, oil paintings and acrylic paintings.
Chester Fields began his professional career as a painter and draftsman. As a draftsman, he spent two years in the military stationed in Germany working for the Adjutant General at USAREUR Headquarters, at which time he was able to travel throughout Europe during his leave and study the fine art of the masters firsthand, including the esteemed inspirers in history, Leonardo da Vinci, Rafael, and Michelangelo. Observing the oil paintings, monuments, and garden sculpture with an inquisitive eye, Chester Fields kept note of his favorite fine art techniques, and incorporated those into his wildlife art work. The oil paintings left a lasting impression on the young wildlife artist. After serving in the military, Chester Fields’ exceptional portfolio landed him a position at American Sign and Indicator, winning out over 400 other candidates. After four years of creating outstanding art work—a theme consistent with Chester Fields – he launched his independent career as a painter and added many Native American art and wildlife art compositions to his repertoire.
A turning point in Chester Fields’ career came with his first statue, Splashdown, in 1984 depicting an eagle catching a fish. Presently a sold-out edition with only a few monuments remaining, Splashdown continues to be a favorite eagle statue composition. Successfully transitioning from painting to sculpting, and being successful at both, is rare – as these disciplines are quite different in nature. With statue, Chester Fields realized his ability to bring the eagles on his canvases to life in three-dimensional form. Chester Fields’ wildlife art work is displayed in fine art galleries throughout the United States and Singapore. He has received formal awards and major exhibitions for his fine art and has a respectable record of corporate and private collectors, including Harley Davidson, Chevron Corporation, Jepson Corporation, the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia, the Sultan of Brunei, Kristy Yamaguchi, and August A. Busch III.
