Svätopluk Mikyta






Svätopluk Mikyta has become well known in recent years for his idiosyncratic workings of original pages from old books produced in the traditional gravure printing process. As a general rule, Mikytas starting point is an anonymous master print or a photo gravure onto which he makes at times a discrete, almost unnoticeable mark, or at other times a fast paced intervention in order to create a geometric, compositional or content related reconfiguration. His drawings are beautiful and conceptual, as if made for a bisexual audience. First impressions draw you to the finesse of the drawings and their exceptional craftsmanship. On looking again, his idea becomes convincing, providing a wealth of possibilities for interpretation.
