In his studio, which he and his wife have turned into a paradise of sculptures and paintings, one will immediately be fascinated by the two kindred souls inspiring each other.
The first question arising after seeing their work is which museum owns them? After enjoying the couples hospitality one is invited to see the place where Ivan is producing his sculptures It is hard to believe that such a derelict place still exists in the 21st century, in a building in the capital city of a pretty big country. It was one hell of a place, with tiny rooms, smashed windows and walls with holes one can see through to the outside. No toilet, no water.
Given these circumstances, Ivans sculptures look even more remarkable. Each one of his works is made of one piece of wood, from a few centimeters to a few meters in size, witnesses to the unlimited energy and vigour Ivan Gracner exudes.
Considering the creative path, the process and the circumstances of the creation, the work is being sold at a bargain price. One will not only purchase a reasonably priced, impressive work of art, but also contribute to the further artistic development of an incredibly talented artist.
