1987 · Slovakia
Jan Valik (°1987, Bratislava, Slovakia) lives and works currently in Brussels, Belgium and Bratislava, Slovakia. Works of Jan Valik emerge from a space among 'absorbed' landscape, recollections, sense and memory. Paintings on the verge of imagination echo sources of inspiration bridging principles of Eastern and Western landscape painting evoked by calligraphic spontaneity along with careful construction of pictorial space. Jan Valik has participated in several residencies in Japan and China. These experiences deepen his research and perspective in his approach to painting. In his canvases the author always balances the perception of space without polarizing the inner and outer aspects, thus he opens further associative and metaphorical qualities for the viewer.
