About the Artist


Gábor Miklós Szőke was born in 1984 in Budapest. He studied sculpting at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in the class of Pál Kő. As a scholarship student in Milan, the time spent at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera had a great influence on him.

The internationally acclaimed sculptor best known for his unique, expressive lath-style monumental public animal sculptures. His many artworks - sculptures, unique furnitures, installations- include more than 100 public sculptures on many public squares worldwide, interior works in pubs, elegant showrooms, museums and galleries.

In Hungary and internationally as well, Szőke is known for his public animal sculptures. Despite his young age, he has nearly 100 works on three continents, which have all become a defining and emblematic element of their surroundings. His pieces can be found in busy public squares in Washington DC, Gstaad, Milan, Rome, Munich, Vienna, Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Zagreb, Samorin, Oradea, Budapest and many other cities worldwide. His creations are made of wood and stainless steel.

The dramatic nature of French romanticism had a strong impact on his work, specifically the expressive brutality of Géricault's paintings. He considers sculptures to be the palpable result of his work, by which he can re-trace significant events in his life. For him, existence equals creation and sculptures are the physical manifestations of this. He breaks down anatomical forms into elementary units and then reinterprets these with the industrial re-construction of these elements. He brings complex and inextricable structures to life.
