Petr Volf, Jan Kaláb - Point of Space, ed. Trafo Gallery, 2018, pp. 274-75, catalogued & illustrated
A founding member of the generation of Czech ‘writers’, whose work is rooted in graffiti and street art, Kaláb gradually transferred this visual culture from the street into prestigious gallery spaces around the world. Street facades and experimental art have been replaced by homemade canvases of varying shapes. His art is characterized by permanent experimentation with new techniques and structures. Through the vocabulary of geometry, acrylic painting and layered surfaces, Kaláb strives to analyse space within the framework of traditional painting, overcoming genre barriers.
