JurajCutek (1957, Zilina, Slowakije) received his education in woodcutting at the College of Applied Arts in Bratislava and graduated from the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague in 1983. He is interested in everything that moves, floats and flies. He is inspired by the world of Jules Verne, which he saw during an exhibition in the Technical Museum in Prague. Cutek's objects are reminiscent of those described in Verne's stories. Cutek's sculptures combine wood with technical elements, which results in collages with a character of surprising wit and irony.
