Contemporary Prague artist Jan Kalab is known internationally for his innovative 3-D graffiti. Born in Czechoslovakia in 1978 at a time when graffiti was a form of protest in Eastern Europe, he made a name for himself in the 1990s as the country was opening itself up to Western influences. Kalab later became known across Europe as "Cakes" and took his art to New York in 2000, making an impression while painting train cars alongside other well-known graffiti artists. Since 2007, Kalab has experimented with abstractions on canvas, earning him solo exhibitions in Argentina, Germany, Paris, London, New York, and Miami. The Polasek Museum exhibit will include sculptures, 3-D canvases, select new works, and an original installation.
