Red Gallery are pleased to announce that Red Gallery artists in residence artist Jakub Matuska will be exhibiting at Galerie Dukan in Paris this coming Friday until the 26th of July, the exhibition called Pohled z lebky // View from the skull, the first solo exhibition of Czech artistJakub Matuška aka Masker(1981, Prague) at the Parisian Dukan Galerie.
Jakub Matuska is currently considered one of the most interesting painters of the younger generation today. His work is enriched by the expressive elements of street art, but is also conditional on the creation of master painters like Picasso and Surrealism for example. During his studies at the Prague Academy, Jakub Matuska graduated from the academic residence at Cooper Union in New York and at Middlesex University in London,
where he gained insight into current trends and contributed his personal enrichment of painting. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (2009) he has developed his own expression through the classical hanging painting, but which carries on the technical elements of street art such as spray paint by spraying. Masker's work established itself on the offical art scene and on the Czech art scene helped change minds on the viewpoint of street art. In 2011 he won the NG 333 Prize, the Czech National Gallery prize for young artist under 33 years of age.
