Marián Komáček





The variety and excellence of Marian Komacek’s oeuvre – graphic paints, paintings and illustrations – rank it among the lasting treasures of Slovak visa arts from the of the 20th and beginning of the 21st centuries. His expressive, linear, dynamic graphic works and paintings, rendered in contrasting colours, have been remotely inspired by new figuration, gestural painting and fantastical ,surrealist poeticism, enhanced by the expressive character of Slovak graphic art of the turn of the centuries in an inspiring connection with international art. Rendered in his own distinctive artistic expression, the artist masterfully exploited a whole range of stimuli and inspirations, drawing particularly on renowned English painter of expressive figuration Francis Bacon (1909-1992) and his distorted figures, and on the Italian painter Alberto Sughi (1928) who captured much attention at the exhibition of his large format figurative works stated in Prague. He was also inspired by other artists, including German graphic artist Paul Wunderlich (1927) and his figural lithographs, and by the French-born American artist Arman (1927-2005)
