LÁSZLÓ LUKÁCSI

When eyes behold the glass art of artist, László Lukácsi, a connoisseur journeys through the history of the glass art movement in Hungary. Lukácsi structured training in applied arts, dedication to the traditions of the medium and the influences of his predecessors are illuminated in each of the cold-worked laminated glass sculptures. The fluid, organic shapes and optic illusions reveal not only his vision but also the laborious techniques.

Lukácsi's expressions drawn from nature and science, combined with humanity’s industrial and technical revolutions ingeniously transform his meticulous efforts into objects of beauty.

He graduated at the Hungarian Academy of Applied Arts in 1985.
