About artist

Jan Kaláb is a Czech artist drawing from the creative roots of graffiti and street art. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. He was one of the founding generation of writers, but gradually took visual culture from the street to prestigious gallery spaces across the world. Street facades and experimental work were replaced by painted canvases of various shapes of his own production. His work is accompanied by a constant exploration of new techniques and structures. Through geometric morphology, precise acrylic painting or layered surfaces, he embarks on an analysis of space within the classical painting. Jan Kaláb’s boundless commitment, joy in playful discovery and overcoming his own possibilities in the end lead him to innovate and remove genre boundaries.
