Branly Cadet began studying sculpture at Cornell University. After graduating, he continued his studies in figurative art at the New York Academy of Art, The Arts Students League, and in France at the Vaugel Sculpture Studio and L'Ecole Albert Defois. He, soon after, won the prestigious James Wilbur Johnston National Figure Sculpture Competition and began teaching sculpture.
Born in New York City, he is a descendant of Haitian metal artist Georges Liautaud, whose exploration of iconography has influenced Cadet's own work. Branly now divides his time between his residence in Oakland, California and New York City, where, along with creating his own art, he accepts small and large scale sculpture commissions.
