Michal Škapa (CZ), Michal Cimala (CZ) → DUO NEONE 2

15.9. - 16.10.2022
  • Exhibition

About project

Michal Škapa has been working with the neon phenomenon for more than seven years and combines it primarily with painting or objects. Michal Cimala proceeds in a similar way and focuses primarily on site specific sculptures and objects. As part of the Duo Neone 2 project with the subtitle Neoneon, which follows the exhibition at the Trafo Gallery, the authors will present completely new works, site-specific installations in the gallery and also in the surrounding area. The work, which is largely based on light and color effects, logically and conceptually gets along with the Signal Festival.

About artist

Michal Škapa belongs among the most outstanding authors of the Czech graffiti scene. He works in the collective of authors of the legendary Trafačka Gallery in Prague. His free work ranges from murals, through acrylic manuscript abstractions, and airbrush figurative compositions, to site-specific installations and spatial objects. He is the co-founder of the Analog!Bros serigraphic workshop and cooperates closely with the BiggBoss label.

Michal Cimala is a sculptor, painter, designer, jeweler, and musician. He studied at the Faculty of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague and since 2006 he has worked as an assistant at Sculpture Studio I at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.
