LáSZLó SZLáVICS (born August 11, 1959) is a Hungarian sculptor and medallic artist . He publishes his works under the names (Hungarian : IFJ. SZLáVICS LáSZLó, or SZLáVICS LáSZLó, IFJ.) LáSZLó, IFJ. SZLáVICS or LASZLO SZLAVICS JR.

“ László Szlávics jr. has set several new norms in Hungarian medallic art. It was presumably not his express aim, but he was merely following the dictates of his innovative mind to do something new not yet found in the trade. He is heading in this direction, with the sure – and literally tangible – conviction that at the extremes, on the limits of the art form there is still a lot to be searched – and found out. ”

— Antal Tóth
