Jakub Nepraš

Jakub Nepras

* 1981

Jakub Nepraš draws upon scientific and philosophical knowledge, as well as personal experience, emotions and (intuition). He tries to study the contemporary developmental tendencies and behaviour of our super-organism in relation to the position of the individual within the whole entity, and to monitor those natural principles that control or influence all of this. Jakub is reflecting the fundamental changes of society and technology and also its dangers and estrangement from human beings and nature. He is trying in his work to re-appropriate a more original and purer way of life and to give natural, organic forms to contemporary society and technology.
