Pavel Brat b. 1987

Paper is my language 

In his works Pavel Brat experiments with paper, studying its properties and relationships with other materials. From collage Pavel Brat has moved to voluminous forms, creating objects and reliefs from dense magazine sheets and books. The current author’s collage technique is a combination of a technical method in which the color in the paper is perceived as a means of collecting mass and filling the drawing, and a genre method in which there is a deliberate collision of realities and birth on the basis of this new sense.
