Antonín Sondej (b. 1992, Rychnov nad Kněžnou) is an artist of the upcoming generation. He is a student of the graphic arts studio of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. Although he uses not only graphic techniques but also drawing, painting and collage, he remains faithful to the principles of graphics. He focuses on the genre of portraiture. His work might be labeled as domestic – intended for the intimate home environment and the context of a closed family community. In reality, however, it is an example of art that simply does not aspire to the “gallery world” so openly. It is an example of “minor art” which is well above the private domain of the home – because it is Art. Sondej has participated at the Graphic Artist of the Year exhibition (2015), and he has also had a solo exhibition in the Olomouc Museum of Art (Café 87, 2017).
