The Story behind G. DeBrekht... Where Dreams become Reality. What began as a personal hobby in the beginning became the foundation for one of the most remarkable studios in the world. Andre Gabricht was a child when his love affair with traditional Eastern European folk art began. While traveling through the many famous art villages with his father, young Andre was mesmerized as he would watch these artisans work the craft that had been passed down to them through many generations. In each village where he traveled to, he found local artists, each with the specialty of carving faces and eyes, illustrational painting – masters of their skill. Seeing the excellence in those artists work, he decided to create the perfect artistry. By passing those different stages of creating to the “hands of experts in the style” for the best woodcarving, best ornamental and decorative painting work in multi technique from all different art villages, Andre with his specially trained artists start working to bring excellence, beauty and character to every piece they imagine. Each figure, ornament, and treasured piece is freehand painted by talented artists to bring you a lifetime of unequaled joy.
