Only a few artists associate such opposite moments in their works such as painter, cartoonist, artist of large-format mural, graffiti, three-dimensional objects and large canvases, Jakub Matuska aka “Masker”. In his work, the comic character alternates with a tragic, dramatic tension released in the esoteric transition to transcendence, where the general elements become symbolic forms.  His work recognizes an effort to overcome transcendence, capturing timeless momentum in the limited space of the image, linking it to the real nature of time of human life.

Jakub Matuška aka Masker has gained a special position on the Czech art scene with his clearly recognizable style, demonic imagination and the ability of comic abbreviations. He is still on the way, although he does not see it as a linear process, but rather the ability to read the multitude and diversity that are present at one and the same moment – the image.
