Renowned Sculptor Naresh Kumawat Visits San Jose Campus

Internationally renowned sculptor and Bolles parent Naresh Kumawat visited the Upper School San Jose Campus on March 14 to speak with students about how he uses modern technology and imagination to create his celebrated sculptures.

Kumawat, who grew up in India and still resides in the country, uses 3D scanning and printing in his artistic process to create detailed sculptures, including the world’s tallest statue of the Hindu God Shiva called the Statue of Belief. This 369-foot sculpture also has a multistoried museum inside, featuring a telescope to view the universe through Shiva’s eyes.

Kumawat’s works, both large and small, have been installed in more than 77 countries. He has also created war memorials and projects for the Indian Army to honor those who sacrificed their lives for their country. 

His daughter, Rudrakshi Kumawat ’26, attended the visiting artist lecture alongside her peers in upper school art teacher Tiffany Gonzalez's sculpture class. Kumawat’s family friend, Bulldog parent Sugar Yadav, was also present for his impactful visit.   

Thank you to Kumawat for inspiring our budding artists to approach their works with an All Things Possible approach!
