Aron Demetz comes from an old Ladin family of sculptors from Val Gardena (it .: Val Gardena, lad .: Gherdëina); the name Demetz means translated from afar. Demetz learned wood sculpting at the art school in Selva in Val Gardena from 1986 and then attended the local vocational school for wood sculptors, wood carvers and barrel painters until 1993. His work was based on sculptors such as Willy Verginer and other progressive artists from Val Gardena. In 1997/98 he supplemented this training with a degree in sculpture from Christian Höpfner at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg.
Since then Demetz has held numerous international group and solo exhibitions in Europe, Asia and the USA. In January 2010 he was appointed professor of sculpture at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Carrara for three years. At the 53rd Venice Biennale, his wooden figure ensemble Untitled was exhibited in the Italian pavilion.
