The Lead



Michal Gabriel, was born in Prague in 1960, he graduated and in the second half of the 1980s. years there and pushed It in the Group and individually. In Prague, lives, works, is there represented in collections and public realizations. In Brno had its collectors and out came a call to action for young art school. The sculpture Studio, expanding the garden in a quiet corner near the fairground, keep Michal Gabriel, even in moments when he got the offer to similar action in traditional art school in Prague. The reason for this voluntary action on first single artistic faculty, in the shadow of traditional art schools, was the founding generation of educators acknowledge the uniqueness, nezatí­ženosti history and uncertain, while completely open future. This potential Michal Gabriel as the teacher takes full advantage of.

Since 1998 is the head, now Professor of sculpture, Studio 1, the field of fine art, sculpture, creation of the Faculty of fine arts of Brno University of technology. The Studio of Sculpture 1 Atelier was founded together with the sculpture 2 (prof. Jan Ambrůz), by developing the original sculpture Studio, which was founded in 1993 by Professor. Vladimí­r Preclí­k. Its predecessor was the Department of drawing and modeling of the Faculty of architecture of the TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY, founded in the 1940s. years, Vincent Makovským. Studio of prof. Gabriela deals in accordance with its focus mainly figurative and figural creation, its deployed is significant in recent years, the use of digital technology for the purposeful creation of spatial.

Successful is the pedagogical influence of Michal Gabriel at the Faculty of fine arts, including the Faculty of management in the function of Dean (2007-2011). Teaching Gabriel’s Studio retains the traditional time to some extent structure. A “preparatory course” can be considered the mastery of traditional sculptural modelling problems heads and figures, in parallel with teaching Studio technology from traditional to digital. The atelier of Michal Gabriela works as an independent organism family type, that his head be governed by his charisma, but does not hesitate to support the creative impulses of its students and make use of their generational experience with new digital technologies. Teachers and students more cooperation continues even after graduating from school, sometimes in natural competition. Gabriel pupils apply as sculptors, sometimes affiliating to the offices of the teams. They are also sought out as artistically crafted by skilled and disciplined and educated teachers.
