This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ivan Biro was a New York sculptor and a founding member of 55 Mercer Gallery, an artists' cooperative in SoHo. He was born in Paris in 1926 and died on February 9 in Mt. Kisco, New York at age 74.

Biro grew up in Budapest. He survived imprisonment in a Nazi labor camp during World War II and in the late 1940's studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest. He immigrated to the United States in 1957, settling in New York, where he began making abstract sculptures out of globes and spheres of highly finished polyester.

He helped found 55 Mercer in 1970 and exhibited there for eight years. He was also a designer in the fashion and toy industries and taught at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan and the Silvermine School of Art in New Canaan, Connecticut.
