    In just a few years, Gerhard Demetz has risen to international prominence by applying his incredible woodcarver manufacturing and traditional subjects that are novel and taste of contemporary viewers.  

    His sculptures of children, are both attractive and disturbing, made with an amazing perfection that is not rhetorical or classical. One of the most amazing technical features is the construction with small wooden blocks and juxtaposing finely polished parts with very hard surfaces and inaccurate. This special and treatment of his sculptures do absolutely unique in the domain of contemporary wood sculpture and is partly responsible for the great curiosity aroused by the appearance of his work in the art world. Since its debut in 2005, Gerhard Demetz has been invited by major galleries to exhibit in the United States, Spain, Germany and Korea among others. It has produced monumental sculptures on commission for collectors worldwide.
