In recent years, drawing as an independent medium was rather neglected by contemporary art, but recently, a more pronounced return to drawing has been observed. On the Czech scene, the contribution of the artist duo David Böhm and Jiří Franta became an important phenomenon in the systematic investigation of drawing as an institution; other artists, such as Marek Meduna or the generation relating to graffiti culture and musical subcultures, profiled themselves markedly by means of drawing. They have recently been joined by a number of soloists and artists taking the “easiness” of the stroke, the aesthetic effect and the emptiness of the sketch as the subject matter of their artistic practice. The relationship between drawing, animation and new media or social communication networks constitutes a specific phenomenon.
