Jiří Kovanda

The conceptual artist, Jiří Kovanda, got involved in fine art for the first time when he was just fifteen. His work is characterized by performances, events, installations and works where the emphasis is placed rather on the content than on the form. Once he ironically described himself as a Sunday painter, though, in fact, his works are not pure paintings as he combines more media, and in the case of pictures, he most frequently works with collages. He is interested in ordinary subjects, feelings, relations and objects to which he gives a new dimension through fine manipulation.
