Monografie Davida Hanvalda, mapující jeho práci z posledních let, je důkazem aktuálnosti malířského média a přináší čtenáři potěšení z kreativní umělecké práce. David Hanvald (born 1980 in Liberec) is one of the most sought-after Czech artists of his generation. In his paintings, he reevaluates and works with the ideas, impulses, and work of 20th-century modern artists. The result is a distinctive and colorful synthesis of modernist avant-garde approaches with contemporary post-conceptual tendencies that breaks down the usual way we perceive the painted image. This monograph of Hanvald’s works from recent years provides evidence that the medium of painting has retained its currency, while also offering readers a sense of delight from creative artistic work.
