Jan Pištěk

Jan Pištěk is an important figure of the middle generation of contemporary Czech painters, which began to be strongly promoted at the turn of the 1980s and 1990s. His distinctive painting style, which has gone through many stages, has evolved into a harmonious blend of realistic and abstract expression, in a unique symbiosis of reality and fiction. In his work, he moved away from classical painting techniques and developed his own distinctive style, linking non-traditional techniques and materials. By casting colored layers, inserting small objects into painting, imprinting or transmitting the projected image almost blindly, he came to a unique viewer-attractive artistic self-expression, whose captivity stems from the ubiquitous association attacking the viewer’s imagination.
