VLAK Magazine invites you to the vernissage of JAN PICHA 2K13, with a performance by Louis Armand and trumpeter Chris Vern, the short film Breakfast at Midnight by Emilio Bellu and Jim High, and music by DJ Roman Rai and DJ Error, at Prague’s NOD, 13 June, 20:00.
Jan Pícha has been a presence in Prague’s ever-evolving cultural scene for over a decade, not as artist, but as DJ. Under the moniker “2K,” Pícha has provided the soundtrack for many wild Prague nights, effortlessly spinning tracks across genres, from smooth and funky techno or house to the harder, driving beats of drum and bass. On the 13th of June at NoD the DJ steps out as artist, proving himself a man of many talents. His canvases drip with tension between the neurotic and erotic; pieces of ethereality contrast with slick, glossed hardness. Pícha is an artist sensitive to the times, in every sense contemporary.
