Boris Sirka

Boris Sirka (*1981, Snina) studied at the Faculty of Arts of the Technical University in Košice in the studios of graphics and experimental art under professors Rudolf Sikora and Zbyněk Prokop between 2000 – 2006 and in 2003 he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in the studio of Michael Bielický. He gained recognition in 2003 as a very young and promising finalist of the Oskár Čepan Award. Currently he lives and works in Bratislava.
In present works he left behind stylized figurative paintings refined by calligraphic brushes, he gave up unnecessary decorating and popular aesthetics and touches of bitter-awkward humour, irony and sexual tension also disappeared. Anime inspiration, linearity or bright colours are not part of his current work anymore. His work evolves naturally, it is more conceptually sophisticated and mature. The visual shock therapy has been replaced by gradual adding of tension. The horror is not the central European B-horror anymore but the Nordic cold and disturbing one. He borrows the continuous development of uncertainty and potential anxiety from his audio visual project Bios (together with Jozef Tušan) where he similarly processes generated soundscapes. Boris Sirka likes to work within clearly defined cycles to which he does not use to return after finishing them. He gets cautioned about his formal distinctiveness but it is still possible to clearly attribute authorship of his works.
