At the age of sixteen, the sculptor Christian Bolt, born in 1972 in Uster, applied to the School for Wood Sculpture in Brienz. The initial scepticism of the school about the very young age motivated the student. About four years later, Bolt successfully completed the wood sculpture school in Brienz. This was followed by stays abroad in Germany and the USA. Back in Europe, the young sculptor moved to Italy, where he studied techniques and materials of sculpture and painting, as well as art history and anatomy, at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Carrara with Prof. Ballocchi until 1999. His studies of classicism and in particular Renaissance humanism finally led him to Florence. As a student of the well- known professor Antonio di Tommaso, who was assistant to Marino Marini at the time, Bolt continued his sculptural studies at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence from 1999 to 2001, graduating with a Master of Fine Arts. After completing his studies in Italy, Bolt devoted himself consistently to sculpture, drawing and painting, and participated in various individual and group exhibitions in Switzerland and abroad. Among others, he participated in the Open12 in Venice, the Art Cologne, the Scope Basel, numerous exhibitions in the renowned Galerie Rigassi in Bern and a cabinet exhibition in the Museum Art St. Urban. In addition to his busy exhibition activities, Christian Bolt realized major works at that time, such as the sculpture "Trapasso" for the collector and owner of the Franz Gertsch Museum in Schloss Gümligen (BE) in 2009, as well as a permanent artistic installation covering the entire building in the Liechtenstein Bank Frick (2007).
The work of Christian Bolt who now lives in Klosters GR with his wife Dominique Krähenbühl and his three sons, attracts the attention of the international collector community. Among others, the musician Sir Elton John acquires two marble sculptures for his private collection.
In 2014 Christian Bolt was the first Swiss sculptor to be awarded the title of professor at the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno in Florence, the oldest art academy in Europe and rich in tradition.
