Ján Mančuška

Although he studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, it soon became apparent that combinations with objects and installations are important for his work. For this purpose, he used the most common items from everyday life, both for their visual aspect and for their conspicuous importance in the life of every person. They add the feeling of proximity, something known or even intimate to his work. He described the fine social analysis of his surroundings and society also in texts which gradually started to become an ever more important part of his works. It soon showed that Mančuška's works are able, thanks to their human dimension, to attract viewers regardless of state borders, and already during his short life he achieved international success.
