    About the artist

    Lives and works in Bratislava
    1974: Was born in Bratislava, Slovakia
    2003-2005: New media studio, Michael Bielicky: Prague.

    Born 1974 in Bratislava. He studied in Bratislava at the Academy of Fine Arts and in Prague at the Academy of Fine Arts where he graduated and received his diploma in 2003. ?Frešo belongs to the most remarkable figures of the contemporary art after the year 2000 in the region of the former Czechoslovakia. His work and overall approach to art is rather untypical but at the same time they reflect the situation in the society and culture.

    The artist creates sophisticated concepts and projects presenting them as seemingly simple closed “Pieces of art”.? He is often critical in his works and aggressively expresses his contempt of the art scene itself and its processes but with a light, humorous and playful undertone. One of the most fascinating elements of his creation is the seeming counterpoint of emphasis on huge, grandiose EGO connected with a Gesture in combination with disarming self-ironic humility. His ability to reveal dark sides of his soul or stumbles and throw them to the world regardless of consequences shift the author ?s concepts to broader possibilities of perception of the reasons of his work.?
