ARTIST PER MONTH │Ema Kobal: Lost Glove
For her first solo exhibition, Ema Kobal is presenting a 15-metre graphic that nonetheless entails just one moment. In order to catch this moment in its entirety, the viewer has to walk through the story taking place in frozen time. The sharp and childishly naive black-and-white figures playfully slide and intertwine across the icy floor, with the author herself playing with the randomness of impressions and strokes during the artistic process.
Ema Kobal (1997) enrolled at the music academy in Salzburg after finishing secondary school, studying the cello. Currently, she is studying Video and New Media at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. She regularly collaborates with pianist Bowrain, performs with the musical and theatre ensemble Karavana, and occasionally writes music for theatre productions. She is a member of the Podmladek collective, which holds group exhibitions. In her art, she expresses herself through various media, recently being interested mostly in experimenting with graphic techniques.

ZINE VITRINE │ Matic Flajs: White, Pink, Blue, White
Matic Flajs se predstavlja z zbirko štirih zinov (Ko Vans jebe, Pink Demon, Nedokončančkoti in Church). Mlad ilustrator s svojo prepoznavno risbo, v katero vpeljuje elemente stripa, ustvarja fantazijske svetove in like. Zanimajo ga različni načini stilizacije, s katerimi spretno dovrši svoje ilustracije. Njegove upodobitve vzbujajo naklonjenost, sam pa ima še raje tiste, ki so obsojene na sovraštvo. Močan vpliv na njegovo delo imata rolkarska in punk kultura, kar lahko opazimo tudi v njegovi naklonjenosti k estetiki grdega.
Matic Flajs (1994) živi v Ljubljani, kjer je maturiral na Srednji šoli za oblikovanje in fotografijo na smeri Grafičnega oblikovanja. Kasneje se je vpisal na Fakulteto za dizajn, kjer zaključuje svoje izobraževanje. Deluje kot samostojni oblikovalec znotraj rolkarske in BMX kulture in je del kolektiva, odgovornega za Hinterland Magazine. Redno sodeluje s podjetji Obsešn, Flow Ramps, Relax Crew Skate Co., Ziggi, Evolution BMX in drugimi.

SVEŽE RIBE #newcatch
Towards the end of November, the fourth edition of the SVEŽE RIBE (Fresh Fish) commercial exhibition, titled #newcatch, will again swim into the main exhibition space of the DobraVaga Gallery. We have curated a new selection of works by artists who have been present at the DobraVaga Gallery for some time now, as well as those who will be featured for the first time. The primarily local artists will display their latest work, as well as pieces that have not found their way out of the studio until now.
