We are excited to introduce the brilliant Jan Kalab to Rhodes Contemporary Art.
As a graffiti pioneer in his native Czech Republic made his name in the late 90s.
As his work developed, he found a new way to push his own limits and challenge himself by making 3-D Graffiti. Under the name of Point, he sculpted huge abstract letters he chose to put in the streets and on the walls. This was another form of graffiti, in daylight, and without a spray, but truthful to the spirit of competition and innovation of the urban scene.
In turn, these sculptures lead him to experiment with more abstract sculptural forms, a path he’s been exploring through canvas from 2007, using acrylic painting and brushes.
We asked Jan a couple of questions on his work, ahead of our Summer Group Show which will feature his work, and also a solo show, his first in London, in 2020.
