Master Butterfly Artist Ted Buckwald is from New York City. A Native New Yorker with an extensive creative background, he has worked with the top Madison Avenue Ad-men, the film and television industry and is noted in the beauty industry not only as a top hair salon creator and owner, but is credited for bringing the first electric hair blow dryer into the United States. With a passon for beauty and art, Ted started working with nature and butterflies over 30 years ago by simply capturing the beauty of the elusive creattures anad designing creeative home and office display units in the like of shadow boxes, plexi-gass encasements etc. His art grew into large life-sized scultures of tigers, panda bears, dolphins, eagles and giant eight foot swarms of butterflies that appear to be in actual flight. His work has been dislayed in New York for decades and now can be seen throughout South Florida, his new home.
Ted Buckwald is the first and possibly the only artist that uses real butterflies to create lifesize images. He first sold plexi-glass boxes with one or two beautiful butterflies suspended in shadow boxes, and since, has also exhibited in many department stores around the country and in Canada, including Macy's, Brentano's, and Bloomingdales.
