It is always a pleasure for Mark Moore Fine Art to introduce our patrons to special or talented artists from around the world that are new to art collectors and curators in this country. Over the last 33 years, we have taken great pride in giving some of the talents their first shows anywhere or in this country. I would like to take this opportunity to do so again here with the work of MARTON VARO.

In 1970, he moved to Debrecen, Hungary, where he completed several sculptures for public places and was awarded the Munkacsy Prize in 1984.
Receiving a Fulbright scholarship in 1988, Varo became affiliated with the University of California, Irvine, studying the relationship between architecture and sculpture. In 1990, he became the Artist in Residence for a public art project in the City of Brea, California. Ever since, Varo has been working in an open-air studio at UC Irvine, California, carving his sculptures for public places throughout the US and abroad. Varo lives and works in the USA, in California and Florida, spending summers working in Carrara, Italy.
