The World of Art of his parents – his father Otokar (was devoted to applied graphics, graphic design, then painting, free graphics and textile production) and the pottery of his mother Mary gave him his first touch with the arts from an early age. Memories of the years of studies,  the teacher the atmosphere and continuing contacts, Oto Bachorík returned after several years of university education among his teachers to ‘his’ Secondary School of Applied Arts to the department of drawing and modeling.

In 1984 he presented his first exhibition and in the same year for the first time he participated in the International Sculpture Symposium in Stone. In 1992 he was the co-founder of an International Sculpture Symposium in Wood in Banská.

My dream was to cast my own modeled statue by myself. It was not easy to make this dream come true. The first cast – the first attempt and then another and another to verify the various theories of casting molds. Detailed monitoring of the effects of temperature, speed of casting, patiently editing the composition of materials – the exact situation, changing the ingredients …  A dream was born! …
