Samuel Paučo @ Start Art Fair

The Nová Galerie (New Gallery) will this year, for the first time, participate in the international show Start Art Fair, which takes place in prestigious Saatchi Gallery in London. The work of Samuel Paučo, a painter of Slovak origin, who lives and works in the Czech Republic and with whom the Nová Galerie closely cooperates, will be presented at the fair. According to the organisers of the fair, young abstract art is popular among art lovers, thus the choice of the painter Samuel Paučo was obvious. Samuel Paučo has been dedicated to abstraction since the time of his studies in the atelier of Martin Mainer and he is always looking for new means of expression.

Samuel Paučo (1986) is a Slovak painter working in Brno and in Prague, graduate of prof. Martin Mainer, nowadays working as his asistant at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. His works (paintings, objects, instalations) balance between abstraction and representation, formalism and conceptualism, aesthetics and poetism, often refering to the painting medium itself... Paint, repaint, cumulate, layer on layer, where each layer or new canvas becomes a new "Curtain" in an semi-unconscious Paučo´s Play.

Besides the paintings and works of art of Samuel Paučo, the Nová Galerie will also, in the form of catalogues, present the work of fellow artists Martin Mainer, Adam Kašpar, Adam Štech, Jakub Špaňhel, František Matoušek and Michal Nagypal.  

About Nová Galerie
Nová galerie seeks to systematically present and support top Czech art both in the Czech Republic and abroad. We are working on creating a strong art gallery presenting the most significant values of the Czech fine arts. Quality, exceptionality and uniqueness of both the author’s works and personality are emphasized in the process of choosing the authors to be represented. Nová galerie is a private and non-governmental institution which builds on several years of long-term cooperation with the represented authors. The range of authors represented in this gallery extends from mid 20th century artists to the present-day young generation. The main focus of the gallery are exhibitions and business activities supplemented by consulting, educational and publishing activities.
