For the month of March 2013 the Ján Koniarek Gallery prepared a solo exhibition of paintings, drawings and sculptures from private collections.
Ivan Pavle is one of the most striking figures in the middle generation of painters. He was born on 8 March 1955 in Galanta. Later he moved with his parents to Prievidza. In his youth he was attracted to engineering and graduated from the electrotechnical high school, but after graduation his sharp talent was so significant that he decided to prefer an independent creative work and the arts. In 1975 he was admitted to the College of Fine Arts and Design, studio of monumental painting (Prof. Castiglione and Prof. Vychlopen). In 1981 he graduated from the College and since then, as a freelance painter, he engages in painting, drawing, graphics, as well as sculpture. He was awarded many honors for his work. He participates in creative symposia (Cagnes-sur--Mér 1989) and exhibitions at home and abroad. His works were presented in Poland, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, France, Monaco, Italy, Thailand and also in the USA. Both monumental and chamber works can be found in many galleries as well as private collections worldwide. Ten eminent Slovak collectors will present Ivan Pavle´s work from years 1999 – 2012 in the premises of Kopplova vila. Ivan Pavle´s work is typical for a prolific painter unrest and strong handwriting. His interest in approaching the best works of the past led him to applying the long forgotten techniques and recipes in his own art practice. His multiple works combine the knowledge of tradition as well as respect for modern materials.
The author lives and works in Bratislava. His main fields are painting and drawing, but he also engages in sculpture, furniture and occasionally in illustration. In Trnava he is exhibiting for the first time. The exhibition In the Sign of Pisces is open till 28 March 2013.
