Damjan Komel (b. 1971) graduated in sculpture and ceramic from the Famul Stuart School of Art, Ljubljana, Slovenia (2004). In his artistic research he seeks to tell his own story, his experiences, personal responses and feelings, as well as those of people and situations he encounters in his daily life.
He uses traditional hand tools, such as the chisel on stone that leaves a unique trail, reflective of the sculptor’s strength and artistic thoughts. He also works with white marble, preferring to sand the marble over a perfectly polished look, leaving the surface soft, flowing and undulating. As well as stone and marble, he works in the classic materials of bronze, wood and ceramics.
Komel has participated in international sculpture symposiums in countries such as Italy, Taiwan (R.O.C.), Slovenia and the Czeck Republic. His work has also been exhibited as part of group exhibitions in countries such as China, Czech Republic, Italy, U.K. and many more.
