JAKUB HOSEK / 7 mai / 19h00 / H’art


 EXPOZITIE DE PICTURA  / 7 mai – 1 iunie / H’art gallery

In lucrarile lui Jakub Hosek se simt atat influente contemporane cat si istorice. Picturile sale realizate in acrilic aplicat cu ajutorul sablonului de stencil pe panza au fost descrise ca fiind ilustrative, narative, avand forta de a spune o intreaga poveste de banda desenata intr-un singur cadru. Spiritul post-teenage Pop ii confera aceasta combinatie intre naivitatea voita a elementelor de banda desenata si tehnica foarte precisa si sigura.

Textele din lucrarile lui sunt preluate din muzica punk-rock pe care o asculta.
Jakub Hosek s-a nascut la Praga in 1979, a studiat la Academia de Arta si a absolvit in 1998 clasa de pictura a lui Vladimir Skrepl. Face parte din grupul artistic de actiune AM189, care promoveaza muzica independenta ceheasca, prin dvd-uri, concerte si chiar un radio propriu. In ultimii ani a fost nominalizat la premiile Start Point Prize si Jindřich Chalupeckz Award, iar din 2005 a inceput sa expuna si in afara Republicii Cehe.
La Bucuresti, Jakub Hosek isi prezinta ultimele lucrari.



Jakub Hosek draws upon a wide range of influences and inspiration, both contemporary and historical, when constructing his paintings. Made using acrylic paint, applied meticulously onto canvas using hand cut stencils of masking tape, Hosek’s paintings have been described as being illustrative, appearing to describe a complex narrative in a single comic-strip-like frame. It is precisely this spirit of post-teenage Pop which informs Hosek’s strongly colored and, through its collage-like comic elements, deliberately naive painting – stylish, cool and technically perfect. The texts incorporated within his paintings are drawn from the predominantly contemporary post and punk-rock music that he listens to.
Jakub Hosek, born in Prague in 1979, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 1998 from the painting studio of Vladimir Skrepl. He is a member of the Prague artists’ collective A.M.180, which publishes independent music from the Czech Republic and abroad, organizes concerts, film projects and exhibitions and even has its own radio program. Over the past few years, he has been nominated for two prestigious awards for artists, the Start Point Prize and the Jindřich Chalupeckz Award, and since 2005 has started to show internationally.
In H’Art Gallery in Bucharest Jakub will present his new paintings.
