Emil Adamec

Czech Republic sculptor Emil Adamec has traveled all over the world to make his monumental stone and wood pieces. His procedure is simple: he arrives on the site, finds the native material and lives and works on the site until the piece is complete. This piece is part of a proposal to bridge Key West and Cuba by creating matching male and female torsos in Havana. He has created these works for Key West and they will be on display in a public space. He has completed works in Maine, China, Africa, New Zealand, Israel, Brazil and many more. He travels with his tools on his back. When not working on a project, he lives in the Czech Republic where he owns and runs a gallery.
