Václav Litvan

Václav Litvan (1983, CZ) graduated from the Jiří Příhoda Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 2009. He has presented his work in several solo exhibitions, mostly in independent galleries around the Czech Republic (for example Galerie Jelení, Prague, Galerie Půda, Jihlava, Galerie NF, Ústí nad Labem), but also at group shows in both Czech and international institutions. In 2012 Litvan was an artist in residence at the Milan-based organization Viafarini, and in 2006 he received the Bohdan Naiden Award. Litvan works with objects, installations, photography and performance. In his demanding realizations, the legacy of modernist forms meets with a contemporary and distinctive approach from the artist.
