Jakub Nepras works and lives in Prague where he was born in 1981. He is assembling video material from various sources and transforms and digitally alters them into video collages, or ìvideo paintingsî as he calls it. He projects his video paintings on regular screens or, quite often, on plexiglass sculptures he created.

Since his childhood, when he began working on a gigantic, still existing tree house building in a forest near Prague, Jakub Nepras is obsessed with the nature and its organic forms. His work constantly shows living organisms in various variations. But the images which Jakub Nepras uses in his video paintings do not only include elements from nature, the images also show contemporary life, mainly images of high-tech electronics and images of the ìage of communicationî we are currently in. Jakub Neprasís work can partly be read as reflection on the fundamental changes of society and technology and also its dangers and estrangement from human beings and nature. It seems as if Nepras is trying to re-appropriate a more original and purer way of life and to give natural, organic forms to contemporary society and technology.
