As well as graduating from Czech Universities (the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague (VŠUP), J. Šalamoun; the Faculty of Creative Arts (FaVU), Brno, J. Načeradský), Lubomír Typlt also studied at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf (M. Lüpertz, G. Merz, A. R. Penck), where in 2004 he became the top student at the studio headed by A. R. Penck. Typlt’s paintings operate on two levels – critically oriented symbolised figuration and constructional (mechanical) abstraction operating on the level of utopia. In his last works the artist has synthesised both tendencies into a joint surface involving the visual encounter of two different expressive worlds, which also takes place outside of painting, in installations. The author takes several of his older themes and through their confrontation creates new levels of meaning. Formally we can observe a tendency toward expressive large-format figuration with strong communicative contents. Typlt creates “allegorised” figures of individuals who find themselves in their bestowed role on the border of seriousness and absurdity (Henri, Pinocchio, Alchemist).
