David Böhm & Jiří Franta

These masters of drawings, installations and performances are graduates of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. They were successful in the finals of the Jindrich Chalupecký Award three times. They both focus on their own work, but since 2006 they have worked together as a drawing duo which is trying to push the limits of this medium again and again. The drawing they do together, where one naturally follows another - sometimes with a specified aim, sometimes spontaneously - arises with certain conditions and obstacles which the authors place on themselves. They draw hanging in the air, with a balloon, with branches in the wind, a motorcycle tire, a church bell, an excavator or little balloons launched into the air. They are invited to international festivals and both have teaching experience at a professional art schools (Scholastika, FFA).
