Juraj Florek is young Slovak painter interested in urban landscape and it´s unique atmosphere. His talent was proved almost immediately after his graduation at Art Academy in Banská Bystrica, when he received VUB Best painting of the year 2014 award. Since 2005 he participated in more than twenty different exhibitions and symposiums.
"The idea of my project is simple- to paint modern urban cityscape in traditional way. I make my paintings always on the spot, therefore straight on the street. The subject matter is about environments, things and places which surround me daily in urban environment. Project will not criticize urban environment as a place that degrades man, it will explore social environment of post-communist democracy and joy of my life in the city, in this case Pilsen city."
The residency of Juraj is made possible thanks to our cooperation with K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence.
