Introduction

Vladimir Skoda is a sculptor, and was born in 1942 (Prague). He lives and works in Paris since 1968.

He grew up with a special interest in mathematics and physics and he was also interested in manual work, he did training as a turner-milling and at the same time he studied drawing. When he was 26 he came to Paris and decided to stay in France to study Arts. The French artist Cesar was one of his teachers and he started working with iron wire. From 1975 he started forging iron and steel, changing his relationship with these materials. In the work of this period appeared simple shapes, balls, tops, pyramids. His spheres, polyhedral and surfaces concave and convex, lying on the floor or on the wall create a feeling of heaviness because of their weight, mass and gravity.  In between microcosm and macrocosm, Vladimir Skoda changes the context and the shapes of their sculptures. Spheres became one of his favourite research subject, in order to develop the multiplicity of relationships between interior and exterior of the material, between the spectators space and works one.
