Alex Palkovich, Sculptor

Alex was born in the trans-Carpathian Mountains, now part of the Ukraine. As a mechanical engineer, he managed companies in the design and production of advanced medical equipment in Mexico, the United State, Israel, and the UK. As his business career flourished, so did his artistic career, as he sculpted and exhibited throughout the world prior to retiring as a CEO with GE to become a full-time sculptor.

Alex is a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, serving 3 years as Vice President, the Oxford Art Society, AMSA, and in 2010, became the first elected member of the National Sculpture Society from South Carolina. He has won numerous awards for his sculpture including a British Design Award (1987),  a national award from the American Institute of Commemorative Art in 2009 for his installation in Florence Veterans Park, and a People’s Choice Award from the National Sculpture Society in 2013. He currently lives in South Carolina with his wife, Aggie, and his much loved Kerry Blue Terrier, Shmulik.
