Michal Nesázal (*1963) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague at the Painting Studio of Jiří Sopko. He went on study stays at the University of Western Sydney and Headlands Center for the Arts in San Francisco, in Hongkong and Shanghai, and on residencies in New York and Vermont. Nesázal creates pure and magically colorful dreamy sceneries which are minimalist in their figural expression yet multilayered in their meaning. His visions are free from narrativity and show the artist’s interest in quantum physics, astronomy and cosmology with emphasis on innovation and formal approaches. He is renowned for his objects rendered as little intimate worlds and environments installed in galleries. He works with found materials, trinkets, toys, stuffed animals and historical design. As a member of the Monday art group, he introduced new conceptual and personal approaches in the 1990s after the postmodern generation. Recently, his works have embraced signs and optical structures dealing with the topic of merging worlds, space and time.
