Marek Pražák is a sculptor, painter, musician, author, performer, designer and multimedia artist connected with Ostrava – not only as the site of his intense cultural and social engagement. Ostrava is also a frequent subject of his visual, sound, textual and other works. His work can be seen in several locations in the public space of Ostrava. Pražák graduated from the Academy of Architecture, Art and Design in Prague: between 1986–1992, he studied at the Department of Machine and Tool Shaping led by Zdeněk Kovář and Pavel Škarka at the detached workplace in Zlín. Besides his non-commissioned work and exhibition activities, he also makes artistic realizations in architecture for private and institutional clients. He has done stage design, working for theatre, television and film. He has been a member of several musical groups (Svoz řepy, Norská Trojka, Elvis Presley Epileptic Band and Elvis Sisters, Barovka, Duo Kotari and the Ostrava cabaret Návrat mistrů zábavy). He is the author of a number of poems and collections, such as Hallad on the Oil City and Silesian Hallads.
