Sculptor Alex Kveton MFA was born in town of Ostrava, Czech Republic. From the beginning of his career he was endowed with two different points of view. His father guided him to master the timeless artisan technique, while his mother introduced him to the world of artistic imagination. After graduation from the Technical School of Machinery Construction he followed his inner voice and enrolled the Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design in Prague, department sculpture and industrial design.
At the academy he learned a fine sense of material and precision in processing, as well as absolute exploitation of the forming qualities and characteristics of material. He designed forms of machines and tools from the giant mining excavators to miniature medals. In 1978 he obtained artist-in-residence in the Vitkovice Steel, presenting his sculptures of steelworkers and welders in several exhibitions. At the same time he took part in great exhibitions of the Czech Artist Association, followed by series of collective exhibitions. He collaborated with architects on small details as well as monumental commissions for architecture.
