ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jakub Hosek draws upon a wide range of influences when constructing his paintings. Made using acrylic paint applied meticulously onto the canvas using hand-cut stencils of masking tape, Hosek's paintings have been described as being illustrative, appearing to describe a complex narrative in a single comic-strip-like frame. It is precisely this spirit of post-teenage Pop which defines Hosek's strongly coloured and, through its collage-like comic elements, deliberately naive painting - stylish, cool and technically perfect. The texts incorporated within his paintings are drawn from the predominantly contemporary post and punk-rock music that he listens to.
