Talos Kedl

 

In the early 1980s, at the age of 14, Talos Kedl began to learn about artistic metal and stonework in the workshop of his father Rudolf. However, it wasn’t until 6 years after his father’s death that he took up making sculptures in his father’s studio again, this time professionally.

In 2010, he completed a private sculpture park called the “Kunstwiese in Neuhodis in Burgenland.
He has been exhibited far beyond Europe, reaching to China and Japan.
His works are made of pounded copper sheeting, welded together with copper thread. The pieces are then sheathed in a layer of transparent lacquer that fixates the colors that emerged from the welding process, ensuring that they are not changed by natural oxidation.

His art is warm and lively, inspired by the myths and legends of forgone times and by nature.
