David Krňanský

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

Graduate of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (UMPRUM), Prague. While Krňanský tends to work across a range of media, his primary form is abstract painting. His abstract works are characterised by a giddy and courageous exploration of colour, while still managing to maintain a sense of decorum via geometric boundaries. Geometry itself and the utopian ideals of Modernism are his main sources of inspiration, which he manipulates to suit his individual purposes. The natural imprecision of the hand when outlining geometric forms has become his signature throughout an adventure of creating lines and forms that are never flawless nor identical. The refreshing novelties and humorous nuances in his work are combined with naïve bravura and a sharp focus on abstractions that hold critical and progressive threads beneath their surface layer of aesthetic pleasure.
