Rudolf Krivoš (1933) is a figurative painter. He became fascinated with figural composition during his studies (1951 - 1956) at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design under Professor Ján Mudroch in the Department of Figural Painting. He constructed his figures and figural groups with an artistic temperament and expressive emphasis. Later, Krivoš started using colour mass layered in relief in many of his paintings. The painter, one of the first to graduate from the Academy, united with other young artists in their efforts to translate reality and to react to the schematic restrictions in art. The historic exhibition Pictures - Sculptures in 1957 presenting their works was followed by the establishment of the Mikuláš Galanda Group. The group?s name indicated its interest in modern artistic expression with a national essence. In this act of restoration, each artist strove to make his individual artistic statement. This issue presents the mastery of Rudolf Krivoš.
