David Krňanský

b. 1987, works and lives in Prague, CZ.

Graduated from the studio of Jiri Černický and Marek Meduna at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design (UMPRUM). His work includes painting, drawing, collage, and site-specific installations. Throughout his work he explores minimalist motifs and repetition, which subtly hint at modernism yet aesthetically diverge and interact with forms in contemporary pop culture and music.
He is using the morphology of modernity, however modernity that came to a stage when its ideological radicality as a representation with independent rules of volumes and surfaces abstracted from reality. But this devalvation also purify it from the ideological pathos, made it be a pure form, which we can use with a complete freedom. In his works exists connection of serious and humorous, irony and ridiculing communicates.
