In cooperation with art publicist and our member Martina Bulakova, Opero brings you every two months a different glimpse into the current Czech painting scene. This cycle opens on Monday, April 24th at 6:30 pm, when we will introduce the first artists.
Julius Reichel (1981) is an important face of today‘s art scene. He studied at Prague Academy of Arts with the guidance of Milan Knížák, and at UMPRUM at the atelier of Jiří David. His works are floating on the edge of figurative and abstract, between the past and the present, among the order and chaos. They can be viewed as a rhythmical energy, as unlimited layers of pictures and symbols— so typical for today’s society.
Patrik Kriššák (1986) studied at the atelier of Daniel Balabán in Ostrava. His experimental approach in work brought him to his signature style of painting without a brush. In his series called “Bottle paintings”, he applies a pot of color to the canvas and drags it along to make a colorful line. Krissak’s paintings are known for their lightness and minimalism. In his works, the sensation of color and shape is more important than the motive.
The exhibition closes on the 2nd of June.
We look forward seeing you!
