View Exhibition

We are pleased to present Pohled z lebky // View from the skull, the first solo exhibition of Czech artist  Jakub Matuška aka Masker  (1981, Prague)  at Dukan gallery.
Jakub Matuska is currently considered one of the most interesting painters of the younger generation today. His work is enriched by the expressive elements of street art, but is also conditional on the creation of master painters like Picasso and Surrealism for example. During his studies at the Prague Academy, Jakub Matuska graduated from the academic residence at Cooper Union in New York and at Middlesex University in London, where he gained insight into current trends and contributed his personal enrichment of painting. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (2009) he has developed his own expression through the classical hanging painting, but which carries on the technical elements of street art such as spray paint by spraying. Masker's work established itself on the offical art scene and on the Czech art scene helped change minds on the viewpoint of street art. In 2011 he won the NG 333 Prize, the Czech National Gallery prize for young artist under 33 years of age.

Nous sommes heureux de présenter Pohled z lebky // View from the skull, la première exposition personnelle de l’artiste tchèque Jakub Matuška aka Masker (1981, Prague) à la galerie Dukan. 
Jakub Matuska est actuellement considéré comme l'un des peintres les plus intéressants de la jeune génération. Son travail est enrichi par les éléments expressifs du street art, mais il est également influencé par la création des grands maîtres comme Picasso et par le surréalisme. Après avoir été diplômé de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts de Prague (2009), il a développé sa propre expression à travers la peinture classique, mais en exploitant également les éléments techniques du street art tels que la peinture en aérosol. Le travail de Masker s'est établi sur la scène de l'art officiel et sur ​​la scène de l'art tchèque et il a apporté un nouveau regard sur le street art. En 2011, il a remporté le NG 333 Prize, le prix ​de la Galerie N​ationale de Prague pour les jeunes artistes de moins de 33 ans.
