ABOUT

PAVEL CHAROUSEK, M.F.A

Pavel Charousek is an award-winning sculptor of international repute who trained as a sculptor of stone in a school with a 130-year-old tradition in Horice, Czech Republic. He continued his artistic education at the Academy of Fine and Applied Arts in Prague, where he received his Masters in Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture.

A sculptor whose work epitomizes beauty and dignity, Mr. Charousek has created enduring monuments for well known personalities, carved alters for churches, designed and realized heraldic symbols for towns, created plaques for institutions, libraries and universities, as well as restored sculptures from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods.

The scale of his artistic output is impressive - everything from modest vignettes to full scale, free standing sculptures and deeply expressive true-to-life portraits. He works comfortably in a range of materials, including marble, bronze and granite.

Nobility and sensitivity are the hallmarks of Pavel Charouseks style. But Charo, as he is known, is also a highly flexible artist who can adapt his talents to virtually any artistic challenge, large or small. Even complete architectural concepts are easily within his artistic range.

Following a successful career in Europe, Mr. Charousek is now bringing his formidable talents to Canada, where in concert with other gifted sculptors, he will continue to be recognized as one of the elite practitioners of his ancient craft.
