After our 10th Anniversary

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 were the first surprised!

We had to learn how to live and think as one in the portable painting workshop we set up countless times in many different places.

We continuously changed the rules of 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!

Our individual visions and styles are based on necessary transgressions towards beauty and reality.

We do our best to represent an equilibrium between beauty and its negation under the shadowy imagery of an unsettling dream.

Our mission is to show the other side of the mirror.


Miroir Noir CV

Started in 2007, Miroir Noir is an artistic cooperation between the Slovak painter and illustrator Miloš Kopták (1969) and the Catalan artist Rai Escalé (1964). Their joint paintings are truly created together in Bratislava or Barcelona, where they meet regularly at painters’ retreats.
