Artist: Wesley Neal Rasko

  • Wesley Neal Rasko is a Canadian born glass artist currently residing in the Czech Republic. Having studied at Alberta college of Art and Design, Wesley has since exhibited his glass sculptures and paintings at galleries all over the world and most recently at theBruno Massa gallery in Paris.

    Swirling colours, emotions, nature and awe-inspiring fascination; this is what Wesley N. Rasko captures in his unique pieces of glass work.

    Glass, a medium most cannot associate fluidity and flexibility with, is what Wesley finds to be the most romantic. Experimenting and playing with the idea of ‘contrast’ regarding colour, feeling, texture and transparency; his glass sculptures are made of painted and laminated float glass, cast glass, optical crystal and exotic stone.

    The glass pieces are then hand ground and polished to their final brilliance. His inspiration comes firstly from emotions, inter-personal relations and the world we
    live in.
