Hugo Raýman


My name is Hugo Raýman, I’m a student of graphics and printmaking at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. Besides studying I mainly work at the cultural and creative center New Cvernovka, where I also participate in the activities of a non profit called ''Vox Loci'', focused on presenting contemporary art in nontraditional spaces. Our latest exhibiton ''Rozptyl'' for example presented over 150 artist form Eastern Europe.

In the past I’ve worked on an animated kids tv show “The Tots”, helped organize kids animation workshops at film festivals here in Slovakia, and even worked on a few international movie productions : ''Mazel a tajemstvý lesa'', 'Kappa'', ''15 x 15 x 5 (minisalon 1984)''

In my work, I mainly contemplate the forms of human existence, our psyche, and our perception of reality. My work has been shown at over 20 exhibitions here in Slovakia. In the past I have published several independent zines. Some of my work has also been published in printmaking publications such as the ''Grapheion - international review of contemporary prints, books and paper art'' .
