about Michal Mráz

Inspired by nature, urban life style, graffiti and pop culture, Michal Mráz’s bold body of work consists of multiple-level narration bridging the gap between modern stencil realism and graffiti. Each work encompasses multiple layered stories, ideas and metaphors, all while on one painted surface. The result is a stimulating highly charged picture, electric and froze in time, with the ambition to provide a critical reflection of the state of a society based on principles of consumerism ruled by systems controlling our knowledge, as well as the life of an individual in public and private sphere alike. The source material often used is comprised of media, such as visual components like newspaper and magazine photographs — mainly LIFE magazine —, film shots, and exerts from the Internet.

Michal originally studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia, the city where he works and lives. In 2012, his work was nominated for the Artaq Urban Art Award in Paris.
