Petr Weigl is an award-winning artist specialising in remarkable contemporary art pieces created in concrete, glass and ceramics. Son of a Czech émigré born in England, Petr trained as a graphic designer before following his muse and dedicating himself to ceramics at Central St. Martin's.
Exploring the potential of many different materials and techniques led Petr to chose concrete as one of his mediums. Unexpectedly, Weigl found himself following in his father's footsteps. Weigl senior, a civil engineer by trade, was one of the foremost experts in Yield Line Theory (a method for the design and assessment of suspended reinforced concrete slabs).
In a neat completion of the circle, Petr's first solo exhibition was sponsored by The Concrete Centre, the publishers of his father's influential textbook on Yield Line Theory. His 'But a Moment' collection is dedicated to the memory of his late father.
Following his graduation, Petr set up his studio in North London and has undertaken many commissions both at home and abroad. Four of his pieces feature in the prestigious Coutt's Collection. He has also designed the Royal Institute of British Architects, Lubetkin Prize plaque for the last four years.
Examples of Wiegl's elegant work can be found all over the world. Much sought after by cognoscenti, his work has seen a rapid increase in value in recent years.
