Meet Gregor Gáll: Inspiring a Better Future through Art
Gregor Gáll’s spiritual awareness is reflected in his art. Watch his video on Scientology.org, one in a series of over 200 “Meet a Scientologist” videos in which Scientologists talk about the application of Scientology to their lives.
In a video featured on the new Scientology Video Channel at Scientology.org, Hungarian sculptor Gregor Gáll speaks of Scientology as an essential part of life.
The sculptures of Gregor Gáll lay bare the human condition and celebrate a long spiritual quest culminating in his finding Scientology.
From age 18, working his way through countless tomes of philosophy, science and religion, Gáll searched for answers about life. But what he sought eluded him. After 22 years, disillusioned by the decadence he saw in the world and frustrated as an artist, he began to despair.
“I felt I had to degrade my vision to communicate to a declining and perishing culture,” says Gáll.
Carrying on with his quest, in 1996 Gáll finally came to a book on Scientology. As he studied the basic principles of the religion he also grasped his role as an artist. It gave him hope, renewed purpose and a sense of responsibility.
“Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, ‘A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists,’” says Gáll. “I saw it is up to me and other artists to create a culture.”
Gáll approached his work with renewed vigor.
Despite great effort, in the 20 previous years he had only exhibited his work five times and sold six sculptures. Since finding Scientology in 1996, Gáll, 53, has shown his work in more than 100 international exhibitions and sold some 900 pieces. The Hungarian state has presented his sculptures to the heads of 12 governments.
Gáll has applied Scientology with his family as well.
“My wife and I use Scientology principles in raising our five children,” says Gáll. “All of them are special in their own right. We encourage them to follow their own purposes.”
“Scientology is not something you ‘believe,’” says Gáll, “In fact, Mr. Hubbard says you should look and see if it is true for you, and that is exactly what I have done.”
Gregor Gáll has found Scientology so basic and practical, he doesn’t have to think about it—it is an integral aspect of life.
“I use Scientology the same way I use oxygen when I take a breath,” he says.
