BIOGRAPHY OF RUDOLF BURDA

* 1973

Rudolf Burda studied at the School of Applied Arts in Turnov (Czech Republic) major of artistic blacksmithing. From 1992 to 1993 Rudolf absolved an internship in California, USA, after his return the Rudolf Burda Studio was established in the Czech Republic.

Nowadays Rudolf primarily works with glass and designs stainless steel sculptures. His works are represented in various art collections in the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Holland, Great Britain, United States of America, and the Middle East. From 2012 Rudolf participated at various exhibitions and art fairs Netherlands, UAE, Singapore, China and USA.

In 2016 Rolls-Royce bought a whole collection of RR & RB and the chairman of Leica Company had contacted Rudolf and ordered a 5-meters-high commission for brand new Leica’s World in Wetzlar, Germany.

At the end of 2018 Rudolf Burda will participate in the most prestigious art events for emerging artists: The Jiangsu Art Fair and the Scope Miami Art Basel Miami, Art Bab 2018, Kingdom Of Bahrain, which will be followed by a personal large exhibition in the capital of Oman Muscat.

Artist’s statement:
“The greatest inspiration for me is the universe that is fulfilling my life’s credo of being the energy of the big bang, which has neither beginning nor ending. In my work I’m following minimalistic legacy and I am searching for the ideal and pure form. My aim is to contribute to the preservation of the old tradition of hand-blown glass together with developing and perfecting it.”
