MAXIM / Alchymist
Vnitroblock, Tusarova 791/31, Prague 7
11. August 2018 - 18. September 2018
MAXIM (www.maximdtla.com), an artist born in the Czech Republic living in Los Angeles, will be presenting his solo exhibition for the first time in Europe in a space that is as unique as his paintings - the sixth floor of the iconic mall OD Prague KOTVA.
You can look forward to an introduction of 40 large-scale paintings created by the author’s own unique technique. The presentation will be accompanied by a live atmospheric DJ set provided by Karel Havlíček, MAXIM's twin and one of today’s most sought-after Czech music composers (www.karelhavlicek.com).
The whole evening promises to bring the audience an unparalleled experience that has yet to be seen in the Czech Republic. This amazing venue with its spacious open-air terrace that offers beautiful evening views of the city along with original music and, of course, something good to drink and eat, are setting up this to be a great summer night.
In addition, a limited collection of shoes and apparel "Of Mind & Heart ", which MAXIM has created in cooperation with Footshop, will be introduced.
MAXIM has named the exhibition "The Alchemist," with a clear reference to the cult book by Paulo Coelho, which twenty years ago became the final impulse for his decision to go out to the world and fulfill his own destiny. As he himself says, these dimensional and heavily textured paintings are a symbolic "book" of his confessions, reflecting the realization that each of us is responsible for their own life story.
After the opening night, the whole exhibition will be moved to VNITROBLOCK (Tusarova 791/31, Prague 7) and Kavárna co hledá jméno (Stroupežnického 493/10, Prague 5) where it will continue through September 18, 2018.
