Jan Kaláb (1978)

Jan Kaláb is a remarkable Czech artist whose style is based on the creative roots of graffiti and street art, and who ranks among the founding generation of writers. He gradually transferred this visual culture from a street environment to prestigious gallery spaces around the world. Street facades and experimental work were replaced by canvases of various shapes of his production. His work is accompanied by a constant exploration of new techniques and structures. Through geometric morphology, precise acrylic painting, and layered surfaces, he embarks on the analysis of space within the classical painting. Jan Kaláb’s boundless commitment, joy of playful discovery, and overcoming of his own possibilities as a result lead to innovation and the withdrawing of genre boundaries.
