The Library of Birmingham will host the first UK exhibition by leading contemporary Czech artist Pavel Brázda next month.

Pavel Brázda Is Here – organised by the Embassy of the Czech Republic, Birmingham City Council and the Ikon Gallery – will open on Thursday (1 June) and run until 1 July 2017. The exhibition presents a selection of works from the artist’s colourful Human Comedy cycle, in celebration of a career which spans more than seven decades.

The Human Comedy cycle is a parable in images – a testament to the world we live in, to human joys and predicaments – and in the series, good and evil get equal treatment. The primary theme is the age-old discord between masculinity and femininity. Although autobiographical, the parables are universal. The artist deals with intimate themes from his own life, yet with a detached perspective.

Pavel said: “This series is structured into individual chapters, each with a beginning and end. It all begins with birth and youth. Then it spans across a range of erotic themes to more dramatic and existential topics – such as old age or death.”
