Adrian Kohler

Co-founder and artistic director of Handspring Puppet Company, Adrian Kohler is considered to be one of the world's leading masters of his medium. His mother was a thoughtful amateur puppeteer, who along with his father, a yacht builder and cabinetmaker, gave him a firm grounding in woodwork and the creation of moving figures. A B.A. in fine art at the University of Cape Town followed.
