About

Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Marko Kratohvil graduated with an MA in sculpture and moved to London in 1991, where he lived and worked for over 25 years. His work includes large scale public art, sculptures, drawings, and design of architectural features. In 2009 he moved to America and now lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Marko used mixed media on paper to create this one-of-a-kind original artwork measuring 23 inches high by 35 inches wide. This artwork is not framed. The artwork is signed by the artist on the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included. Marko Kratohvil describes his sculptures and his works on paper as “two means of expression.” He explains, “Both disciplines are linked by their formal vocabulary: line, form and color. Each work carries notions of space and movement, rhythm and energy, concept and form and aspire to articulate those fields of our experience that remain before or after verbalization. They are about inner landscapes, individual time, architecture of emotions.” Kratohvil says of his work, “In order to express tensions and subtleties of these abstract notions, I use iron, which carries a complex historical reminiscence, and with its natural color acts in space as a drawing in charcoal does on paper. I express myself in the medium of sculpture because of my natural inclination towards three-dimensional perception and its physicality. It allows me to explore further beyond two dimensional illusions and outside of verbal conventions. Drawings are notes that speak about feelings, emotions or sometimes, simply about rhythm itself. They can be read and seen like a body language. Seeing is in itself a movement.” Marko’s artwork is held in corporate and private collections worldwide. He has extensively exhibited throughout Europe and the United States.
