The Czech artist Epos 257, whose identity remains unknown, works in and with the urban environment and iconography of a city. In his creativity, he comes up with innovative approaches, focusing mainly on the themes and issues of public space and current social issues. The number in his name is the number of a law dealing with damage to private property, which he has often come into contact with in his creative, socially critical practice. He is a graduate of the Prague Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design and a former member of the Ztohoven interdisciplinary group. He has held five solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions in the Czech Republic and around the world. Epos 257 was selected in an open call for the Artist Work Challenge work residency and will, in addition to the exhibition project at the Alkatraz Gallery, also carry out an external intervention at Metelkova.
