Closed Today (Saturday)

Painter, graphic designer and illustrator Václav Fiala (1896-1980) was an avant-garde artist who began working under David Burliuk, the founder of Russian Futurism, as an assistant of art history. After returning to Czechoslovakia, as it was then called, he studied at Max Švabinský’s art academy. In the early 1920’s, Fiela visited Japan together with the Burliuk family and other artists, producing several works under the guidance of his contemporaries during his stay. Both Fiela and Burliuk underwent an intensive two-year period of artistic production that impacted their subsequent activities following this.
Here the work of Fiala, and his connection with Russian futurism in particular, in introduced in Japanese for the first time.
