Deeply invested in modern and contemporary art, the Widewalls magazine aims at providing a unique experience for its readers in the form of in-depth and quality journalism.

In his work, Michal Černušák explores current societal events and responds to problems with not infrequent political context. In his paintings, the following themes resonate: the day-to-day dangers and risks of political power, global industry, science and research, new technology and, not least, the information overload of the media, which in many cases works with strategies of manipulation and speculation. On viewing the latest large-format paintings of the artist, the age-old truth appears to be that the greatest danger for humanity is represented by its own species. Černušák’s monumental compositions are reminiscent of apocalyptic visions in which references to the past are mixed together with images of the future.
