Michal Cimala graduated from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. His field of interest encompasses design objects, installations as well as paintings. Cimala’s gift for unambiguous and effective aesthetics of technical character is apparent in all his creative outcomes. The gradual and painstaking processing of objects which are often made of variously collected and waste plastic evokes the impression of sophisticated high tech. They are moreover beautiful, practical objects reminiscent of music instruments. In painting, Cimala employs the method of spraying that refers to the origins of Czech street art, but the use of templates and symmetrical structures also refers to the aesthetics of the New Sensitivity of the 1960s. Cimala is presently active in the multifunctional spaces of the gallery Trafačka in Prague and its studios. He long worked abroad, mainly in Berlin, and is often invited to numerous, both foreign and Czech, exhibitions.
