Vladimír Gažovíč is an excellent representative of contemporary Slovak graphic art who transformed certain format and meaning impulses of the classical message of art development within the current context in his work. At the end of the 1960s Gažovič began to develop his original concept of graphic work which enabled him to break through to the foreign art scene more intensively than anyone before him. The novelty here lies in the technological perfection of his work with original lithographs printed from stone. This new technology allowed him to perceive the artistic form in a new way and to build it on painting principles. By working with graded color shades and light he forms the plasticity of shape as a spatial value. This approach is unique even today. He works with figure as a multi-string instrument – a carrier of moral and ethical values. The legacy of Hieronymus Bosch and later symbolists and expressionists resonates in his work from this aspect.
