Biography / JAN KALÁB

Czechoslovakian artist, Jan Kaláb is one of his countries longest- serving graffiti-artists and has a career that spans over 20 years of artistic output. His art today is deeply rooted in his times as a graffiti artist and consists mainly of abstract, very colourful forms. Jan Kaláb has collaborated with Urban Nation on Project M/9 in 2016.

Jan Kaláb’s AKA Cakes hints towards his past. Kaláb was one of the very first graffiti artists from Czechoslovakia who made an international name for himself, going as far as completing whole cars in New York in the early 2000s. Under his second alias, Point, he explored another street art form, 3-D graffiti. Huge abstract letters he chose to put on streets or walls. This experimentation with new forms ultimately leads him to experiments on canvas, and then to an increased interest in geometrical forms. Today, as Jan Kaláb, he uses a repertoire of colours and abstract shapes for his artistic variations on time and motion in sculpture and painting, always inventing new forms, always overcoming boundaries. What Kaláb creates today can be seen as a tribute to his past, to the art of graffiti.
