About the show
Known as a pioneer of urban art in Eastern Europe, following the end of communism, the Czech artist Jan Kaláb (1978) comes to Colombia with the exhibition “Pulso Cromático” not only to present his works through graffiti, mural, painting, sculpture and installation, but also to confront us with our own limits, inevitably those moments where the circumstances are transformed.
The use of the circle as a container of matter which vibrates with color, creates the sensation of waves reaching beyond the limits of the piece without a precise direction, like some sort of perceptible yet invisible presence. With a sophisticated, proper handling of geometry and color, he presents us with a great graphic metaphor of the world, where we can identify and feel the tension that exists between one layer and another and the points where images transcend their limits, until joining and contaminating one another.
Kaláb’s work always seem to be on the verge of exploding, overflowing the physical space of the canvas, which creates tensions in perception and ambiguities in the nature of his work that seemingly melt the space between sculpture and painting.”
