freso’s story

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 expresses his contempt of the art scene itself and its processes but with a light, humorous and playful undertone.

He prefers short interval between action and reaction and conditions of quick recognition of relations between the expressing “me“ and the indication “he”. Another very typical aspect is that he publicly presents his radical and often despising opinions of the society and art scene which might irritate and provoke a discussion about what is and what is not acceptable as contemporary art or just a self-centered affect of the artist.

Freso often deals with emotions that consciously raises debates on the stereotypes of the perception of art and the values of the artistic operation. In the statue of Pičus, or Nobody, he has redirected this strategy into human characteristics that resemble the series of seven original sins. He has the head of youth, the front of knowledge.
