Aleš VeselýBorn February 3 1935, Čáslav
Died December 14 2015
Aleš Veselý is a Czech artist, sculptor, and teacher. His work strongly resonated with philosophical notions and was based on imagination and existential themes. Especially in recent decades, he has tended to monumental sizes and the processing of matter by simple physical mechanisms. His sculptural works are permanently exhibited in such places as the Olympic Park in Seoul, Faret Tachikawa in Tokio, Terezín, Europos Parkas in Vilnius, and Wijk aan Zee in the Netherlands.
