Jakub Hošek


Jakub Hošek is an artist based in Prague. Subcultures and their disruptive character are the inspiration for Hošek’s work. Where traditional painting is characterized as an expression of the artist himself, Hošek interchanges this characteristic with his own impersonal approach in which he uses carved stencils as a medium. Hošek creates his own shapes that are uncommon in traditional painting. Apart from that, drawing is also an important part of Hošek’s work, the result refers to an existing painting or object. The images that Hošek creates don’t refer to an existing world, but a reinvented one that exists on its own.
