Janez Boljka (1931-2013)
For his sculptures exhibited in the last year at the exhibitions of the Slovenian Association of Fine Artists and for the Hostages Monument at the Ljubljana cemetery

Janez Boljka, a sculptor, soon left the well-trodden path of academic and classical sculpture, and began pursuing his own artistic expression and new techniques of expression as well. His Hostages Monument, over 30 metres in height, presents a synthesis of his previous creations. It is a symbiosis of realistic expressionism and abstract symbolism – a dreadful and shocking reminder of a certain time. The quality of Janez Boljka’s expression in printmaking is just as excellent.
