ON THE VERGE of Painting and Graphic Works is the title of an exhibition presenting works by Vojtech Kolenčík, which runs at Bratislava's Nova Gallery on Baštova Street until September 5.

Born in 1955 in Nitra, Kolenčík is one of the graduates of Albín Brunovský's class, whose work brought about a new way of thinking in graphic art in the 1980s, during the communist years. Famous are his wired-over, as if silenced faces and figures, which at the time of their origin were a testament to the restricted freedom of creativity and thinking and which were then ideologically refused.

Creating in a neo-cubistic style, he primarily focuses on colours. Thus, many of his works ceased to be graphic works as he started to combine them with painting techniques. At the moment, it is painting that prevails. He paints his feelings that reflect current events on small and large boards. The exhibited works are also for sale.
