Šimon Sýkora (b. 1990 in Pilsen, Czech Republic, lives and works in Vienna) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Prague in 2019. Sýkora’s spookily melancholic paintings explore the hazy realms of wanderers and mists. Existing in a reality that is almost violently Bataillean, the artist’s work explores the more internalized notions of the human condition, which is rather imperceptible, but agonizingly presentand powerful in shaping one’s reality.
