Jiří Kučinski

The Czech republic

Jiří Kučinski grew up, as he says, "in the grey streets of Ostrava of the 90s". This bleak, uniform and gloomy backdrop of his youth marked his perception of the surrounding world and, logically, the whole further development of his artistic direction. The absence of colours in the grey streets of Ostrava during his adolescence provoked a strong reaction and a need for his own artistic expression and personal manifestation in these places. The street thus became his canvas and with paint in his hand he now explores the world.

A colab with Martin Gelner:

Martin and Jirka created a joint large-format work for the Off the Wall project, a kind of triptych on the theme of freedom. A dog running out of the city without a collar as the central motif of the painting is a symbol of freedom for the authors. On the contrary, dogs with a collar on their neck have their certainties, but they lose their imaginary freedom. And they see the same parable in humans.
