Stanislav Kolíbal

Born December 11 1925, Orlová
 
An important Czech sculptor, a representative of conceptual thinking who tried to combine art and architecture. The author of a number of public implementations, such as a relief wall for the Czechoslovak Embassy in London and the Pankrác head of the Nusle Bridge in Prague. During Communist rule (1970-1988), he was forbidden to exhibit and export his works abroad. However, he never stopped creating and he developed the possibilities of spatial installations in his studio.
