Our mission is to show the other side of the mirror.
MN is an artistic cooperation between the Slovak Miloš Kopták (1969) and the Catalan Rai Escalé (1964). Starting in 2007, their joint paintings are truly created together in Bratislava or Barcelona, where they meet regularly at painters’ retreats.
10th Anniversary thoughts
What started out as a playful painterly party for two has become a loaded machine gun with its own criteria to trigger and shoot. And we have been the first surprised!
We had to learn how to live and think as one in the portable painting workshop we've set up countless times in many different places.
We kept changing the rules we set for each new get-together or exhibition project, in order to make them as challenging and as close to a first time as possible.
No self replicas or anxious mannerisms are allowed in the studio.
Our individual visions and styles are based upon transgressions from beauty and reality, and we try to synchronize them to get the right destillate.
We search for the equilibrium between beauty and its negation, and we try to present it with the emotions we find when we get lost in an unsettling dream.
