Welcome to the world of contemporary glass art made with passion by Marek Brincko from Levoča, Slovakia. Since his studies at The Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava he created many glass structures and participated at many exhibitions worldwide.
Enjoy my personal gallery. If you are interested in any piece of my art, do not hesitate to contact me.
The work of Marek Brincko glass art oscillates between the strict geometric shapes, the architectural inspiration of medieval vaults and the use of natural structures in strict geometric prisms. Clear lines of geometric abstraction is combined with the most peculiar natural structures.
Marek Brincko ranks among the young generation of Slovak glass artists. He studied at Studio of Glass at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava in 2000 – 2006. He was working at the studio of famous glass artists, Zora Palova and Stepan Pala.
He participated in a group exhibitions in Bratislava, glass gallery Nova (2005, 2007), The Talent Days in Munich (2008), Strasbourg (2007), Slovak glass, Beirut, Lebanon (2011), group exhibition in London (2010), group exhibition in Slovak contemporary glass in Halle du Verre, Claret, France (2016), solo exhibition of Light gates cycle, Bratislava, Nova Gallery, and Structure and Light Exhibition, Hamburg (2018).
Currently, Marek Brincko focuses on creating fused glass sculptures. He considers this noble material the ideal medium that offers many solutions to artistic problems with the relationship between light, space and matter. His works are based on elementary geometric shapes differently combined, layered, perforated and faceted to achieve a specific shape. The result is compounded by working with light, natural and artificial, which breathes the works mysterious inner life.
I am also looking for inspiration in medieval architecture of my hometown – Levoča. I modify architectural elements such as vaults, a broken arch, a support system, rough walls, conical window shutters, and create new objects called Gothic Gates and Gothic Windows – see my Glass Work.
Bees are my great source of inspiration for me. I took over beekeeping as an inheritance from my father, in fact I am already the third generation of our family dedicated to beekeeping. I take care of the bees in my cottage towering over Spiš Castle, where I find my “refuge”.
I live and work in Slovakia. You can find my art on many exhibitions worldwide. For inquiry or anything else, pls contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
