Matjaž Počivavšek was born in 1955 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He graduated from the Academy of fine arts in 1987 and went on to specialize in sculpture in 1980. In 1980/81 he took courses at the New York Studio School in New York, and at École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris from 1983 to 1986. He has been a professor of sculpture at the Academy of fine arts in Ljubljana since 1996. He currently lives and works in both Ljubljana and Paris. Visconti Fine Art fosters a close friendship with professor Počivavšek, whose exhibitions we have held numerous times at various locations and whose pieces can otherwise often be seen adorning our gallery.
