Josef Duchan (1970) is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (graphics, restoration). From figurative work he came to structural abstraction, which gradually changes forms and forms. From the classic painting on canvas, the author moved to painting and drawing on the various materials found and to ever freer expression. It is not limited by anything and transcends generally defined boundaries - whether spatial or physical. He draws in endless cycles with both hands, his traces of color metamorphose into objects, installations. His "head - hands - heart" style is incomprehensible, captivating, liberating.

Plan B – Smetana’s art Litomyšl

Dear friends, I cordially invite you to the installation of “EYES” in Litomyšl as part of the Plan B exhibition.
The event starts on July 3, 2021 at 2 p.m.
The installation will last until August 30, 2021.


Josef Duchan (1970) is a restorer and virtuoso draftsman and painter, who recently, full of various limits, has also been working with found materials and objects. As in his endless drawings, structures can be created from the former supporting bridge structure and developed into a diverse symbolism of fractals. A section from an endless structure called Eyes is a visual game inspiring the viewer to a different way of observing and also to think about forms of recycling in contemporary art.
