JAN VASILKO

Jan Vasilko 2009 was the first prize winner of the STRABAG International Artaward. He used his stay in the Artstudio for a new series of small-format images and for his solo exhibition. 
Vasilko’s painting has for a long time inclined towards a unique creative program emerging from the romantic enthusiasm for production and utility machines, various mechanism, production halls and robots. “Mechanisms” in Vasilko’s paintings fulfill the function of the story heroes, bearers of the ideological or philosophical messages and symbols. His personal version of the painting corresponds with its techno clean motif basis. An extremely clean handwriting dominates here, geometrical accuracy of the lines, clean areas creating bright compositions and softened coloring. In his latest works he moves towards more graphic expression, the painting becomes almost monochromatic and based mostly on linear relationships. Peter Králik, artist
