Pablo Picasso said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”. Maros Hrnciarik’s life has been anything but mundane, with his art inviting us to explore a world of ideas and possibilities. The Slovakian sculptor’s work includes everything from the restoration of historic European statues to modern sculptures imbued with a sense of humour encouraging playful engagement.

Maros is currently studying Marketing and Leadership at Australian Pacific College on the Gold Coast, but that hasn’t stopped him also working on a number of local projects, including a major sculpture as part of an artificial diving reef being built off-shore and the new Atlantis installation at Sea World.

"This series is amazing.  I know both the people featured so far and yet I had no idea of their stories.  Both were captivating for different reasons, and both resonated with our family on a personal level.  It is interesting to have your perceptions of a situation challenged by others lived experiences.  I cannot wait for the next podcast!"
