Mgr. art. Marián Králik, Art. D.

Born in Poprad, working in Bratislava, Slovakia. Graduate and a pedagogue at Slovak Technical University in Bratislava, Faculty of Architecture, Institute of Design.

Diagnosed by pedagogues as bizarre, due to the absence of mind during endless drawing from the early age. At the university, influenced by brilliant draftsman, academic painter Milan Lehmden and by design professor Peter Paliatka. Their altruism changed inner understanding of pedagogy , getting ever deeper under the skin.

Current period of 'Post drawing age, is characterized by today’s departure from sincere, exact drawing, while, on the contrary, Králik brings back the absenting mastery of anatomy. What follows is the transformation of universal knowledge into interdisciplinary overlaps of visual expressions.
