LAUNCH F18 presents Aggressive Slav, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Andrej Dubravsky. The exhibition marks Dubravsky’s first solo exhibition in New York City.

Inspired by contemporary global issues, Dubravsky captures a remarkable breadth of social, environmental and political challenges within his new body of work. Charged with utopian and dystopian themes, Dubravsky builds a throughline around the sense that humanity is on the precipice of darkness.

As a child, Andrej frequently traveled to his grandmother’s house in the countryside of Slovakia passing by a large factory each time on his way. When his grandmother moved to the city, Andrej bought a house nearby to remain connected to nature.

Aggressive Slav constructs a haunting narrative that the lines of history have been drawn. From coiled caterpillars to portraits of attractive young men, the works demonstrate a juxtaposition between the destructive qualities of humanity and the delicacy of expressive freedom. From his home in the countryside, Andrej has captured a distinctive viewpoint of the ever-present social, political and environmental changes in our world.

By expanding these universally concerning ideas, Andrej crosses the boundary of painting, and enters into a new and unseen future. The works remain deeply connected to the history of mankind, and capture a distinctive blueprint of the future. Aggressive Slav thoughtfully engages with the endurance of humanity and the careless destruction that it relentlessly casts upon the world.
