Artist Profile

Martin Galbavy

Sculptor and blacksmith Martin Galbavy is originally from Slovakia. He creates monumental sculptural pieces from scrap metal, sourced from reclamation yards and car boot sales as well as old tools. He uses horse shoes, bed springs, brake discs, spanners and other assorted metal detritus.

His most recognised work is The Haunting Soldier, a 6m tall weary-looking WWI soldier with a pack, leaning on his rifle that he created in 2017. The sculpture was on display in St Stephen’s Green, Dublin in 2018 to mark Armistice Day.
