Josef Bolf

With his works, Bolf is one of the most distinctive representatives of his generation and of contemporary Czech painting in general. Works with a dark, stuffy atmosphere created using the technique of scratched ink on crayon is Bolf's typical trademark. His world of quiet demons drawn using a technique known from school is occupied by beings half people, half animals with big eyes enclosed by fans of eyelashes. Rooms and blocks of flats captured in geometric perspective refer to his childhood spent in the environment of the Jižní Město (Southern City) quarter in Prague. The works by one of the laureates of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award include, among others, a painting on the façade of Jurkovič Villa in Brno–Žabovřesky, which was created during the villa's reconstruction.
