International weekend: Jan Padyšák

Jan Padyšák

I graduated on Academy of fine arts in Prague, studio of drawing, 2008. I live and work in Prague. My work consists of sculpting and animation.

I create things which I want to see. After experimenting with more medias i decided for sculpting, because basicly it is mostly atracting me.
I mean, that sculptures and objects should be the most comunicable medias in era of flowing images.
My work is not one-sided, sometimes i use my own body which i duplicate thousands and thousands times and make endless 3D animation of it, sometimes I use profile of czech president and create his continuous profile by Bertelli.
In my last work, the pieces series, on which I am continuously working on I increase small pieces of different plastic materials in its own shapes to monumental dimension
