Artist Ľubomír Ferko
(1956, Slovakia) is renowned East European glass artist, he studied Applied Arts in Bratislava and attended the Art Academy in Belgrade and the Kunsthochschule in Cologne. He casts glass into flowing pieces often embedded with calligraphy and formed to create a series of conceptual reflections on the bastions of spirituality. His work has roots in Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Tibetan Buddhism revealing in their spiritual wisdom. In "Let there be light", Ferko began a serious interpretation of Biblical creation in each of his glass sculptures.
He is conscious of the characteristics of each of the historical pillars of our modern world and their negative and positive contribution to the whole. Ferko combines in his optical glass the beautiful calligraphy of oriental scripts as seen in his The Spirit of the Himalayas Tibetan glass series.
