Pavel Barta was born in the Czech Republic. He worked as graphic designer in a publishing house in Prague. During that time he started to consider an “escape” from computer art and became interested in “hand made art”. He used material such as wood, clay, paper, and metal to create miniature sculptures. His first exhibition took place in Prague in 1996. Each miniature sculpture is original and unique as he does not use molds or patterns.
He came to Canada in 1997. Here he became interested also in stone and bronze sculptures. In 2007 he started to work with another medium - fiberglass - to create large scale outdoor sculptures. His large scale sculptures could be seen in Campbell River, Kelowna, 108 Mile Ranch, 100 Mile House, Banff, Clinton, Heffley Creek and at Sun Peaks.
