Christian Cadelli was born in Belgium in 1953 in a family of craftsmen who originally came from Frioul. His knowledge of the basic techniques of gips was learned naturally in his father's workshop. He is a professional craftsman with a diploma from the Academie des Beaux Arts of Brussels.
In order to further explore the crafts of modeling and sculpture, he became expert in the use of various materials and their associations, as well as with applied finishes. Always looking for new ideas, his research is often the result of the combination of natural stones, clay, bronze or wood; a combination not often used in sculpture.
