László Kutas
 

+ go to lászló`s work


 

László Kutas’ sculptures have been described as “characterized by sensuous patterning, excellent sense of form, original composition and selective use of materials.” His is an individual style based on the realist tradition mirrored by his many stone and bronze statues placed in public squares, but also by his hundreds of mini-plastic pieces, many of which have found their way into private collections on five continents. With his commemorative coins and medals he won both domestic and foreign acclaim.

From cold, hard bronze Kutas forms, not mere figures, but charming characters full of warmth and the softness of life. Elegant, tranquil women and playful, innocent children excite our imaginations and even our affections. The bronze sculpture of László Kutas immediately ingratiates itself with whoever beholds it. From Budapest to Windsor Palace, his long and eclectic résumé can be seen, instead, as a history of those from around the world who have fallen in love with his delightful sculptures.
