Miroslav Pomichal

IMG_3834.jpg

Miroslav Pomichal was born in 1984 in Czechoslovakia. He works in London, Sherborne in Dorset, and Velka Lehota in Slovakia. He studied Art History at the Courtauld Institute and Fine Art at Wimbledon School of Art. 

 

Miroslav works across media, including sculpture, installation, print and digital work. His primary medium is painting. His recent work explores the ideas of ruin, age, solidity and permanence through the metaphor of the medieval. This is continually undermined in his work by the transience, disembodiment, transcendence, or symbolism inherent in the metaphor, but also in the act of artmaking and the medium itself.  

Miroslav has had his work acquired my the Ingram collection of British modern art and was chosen to assist in the judging of the collection's Purchase Prize when it was first set up. His solo exhibitions include those with Aleph Contemporary London (with Archie Franks), Three Works Scarborough (with Ana Milenkovic), Griffin Gallery London, Kun Kelemen Fine Arts Bratislava, and Flatgallery Bratislava. Group shows include those at Bratislava City Gallery, Leopold Museum Vienna, Newlyn Gallery Newlyn, and Institute of Conteporary Arts London.
