Jan Šerých

Jan Šerých (born 1972 in Prague; lives and works in Prague) is a Czech conceptual artist. His multimedia work deals with the fragile border between reality and fiction, or mystification. Visually, his works are characterized by formal reduction and monochromatic execution, based on rational work with new technologies and computer software, but which is mixed with the emotional content of individual works. Šerých’s works are a post-digital analogy of visual poetry influenced by the experience of the digital environment, whose features the artist transfers to the analogue world, often in the form of a painted canvas or a site-specific mural.

Šerých’s work has been presented in numerous solo exhibitions, e.g., at the Týn nad Vltavou Town Gallery (2017), the Hunt Kastner in Prague (2016), Plato Ostrava (2014), České Budějovice House of Art (2003), as well as group exhibitions, e.g., at the Fotograf Gallery in Prague (2022), Prague City Gallery (2021), the National Gallery Prague (2019), the Cursor Gallery in Prague (2019) and the National Museum of Art of Romania in Bucharest (2017).
