David Böhm – MoA Bonus Episode 14
In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to David Böhm (@davidbohm1)
David Böhm & Jiří Franta
The leading Czech artists David Böhm and Jiří Franta, an artistic duo since 2006, explore in their work the relation between drawing, performance and conceptual art. Known for drawing and painting on walls in galleries as well as in public spaces, Böhm and Franta present their distinctive perception of the world – their views on society, politics, the art scene, and mass media as well as their own feelings. In their “illustrations,” they often play with multiple meaning and irony, commenting on the life of the human community. They were finalists for the Jindřich Chalupecký Award, the top Czech award for visual artists up to the age of 35, in 2009, 2010 and 2012 and have received multiple awards for their books, the most recent one being the Illustrator of the Year Award at the Czech Grand Designs 2022 for their book City for Everyone; A Manual of Urbanism for Beginners.
Organized by the Czech Centre London and LUSTR Festival of Illustration, Prague, the largest illustration exhibition in the Czech Republic.
In collaboration with the Kensington + Chelsea Art Week and the London Festival of Architecture. Supported by the Czech Embassy in London.
