Thousands of Wood Slivers Form Amazing Cathedral Artworks by Kalman Radvanyi

Kalman Radvanyi was born in 1976 in Budapest, Hungary, into a family of painters and master craftsmen. The political situation at that time was less than favorable for artists and his family sought for years to immigrate to the West. When he was 11 years old his family was able to leave Hungary and move to Austria. After six months his family was granted a visa by the Australian government to immigrate to Canberra. Kalman found him-self in a new country with a new language he didnt understand. These circumstances brought his family close together and Kalman began to spend more time in the workshop of his father. Back in Hungary Kalmans father had been a master furniture maker. He made two dimensional inlays in his furniture and also worked some with marquetry. Kalman began to study the delicate techniques of fine wood working and became especially interested in creating images using wood marquetry.
