His exclusive concern with the human figure makes him an extraordinary representative of his generation. He uses plaster, epoxide, fibreglass and also bronze. His art focuses on figural representations in sculpture, ranging from portrait to self-portrait, through expressive and anatomical studies of the human body to elaborate groups of figures.


Born in 1972 in Bratislava, Slovakia.
He is a member of arts associations in Slovakia and Germany. Artist lives in Bratislava and makes sculptures depicting the human form. His works have been shown at exhibitions at home and abroad: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Serbia and United Kingdom.
