Michal Škapa aka TRON – New art exhibition in Prague’s Trafo Gallery

On Friday there was an opening of long awaited new exhibition of one of the most popular Czech street artist TRON. Michal Škapa belongs amongst one of the graffiti pioneers who started with graffiti in Prague in the mid 90’s. From that time he went a long way and these days you can see his art not only in the streets, but also in prestigious galleries around Prague.

This exhibition proves that he never stay on a spot and again pushing the boundaries and leaving the “competition” far behind. This exhibit is called significantly ANALFABET as here he’s mainly playing with his own unique type font, that he developed over the years and for those who are not familiar with it it’s kind of hard to read, so it’s something like graffiti cryptography. You can see this type font all over the place in many different forms – engraved 3D installations, canvas paintings, paper paint, on house video projection etc. What we like the most are the canvases painted with airbrush where Tron’s unique font is inscribed as a code into concentric circles that can evoke an old data processing media in combination with the specially designed glass neon light tubes it’s just incredible. If you would focus on the script carefully, you can find out that in the paintings there are inscribed for example quotes from his favourite music bands like Nine Inch Nails or Depeche Mode. Cherry on a cake can be the circular canvas in the back of the gallery, when someone gets closer to the painting it starts to rotate so no one can actually read it…

If you are in Prague this month, this exhibition is definitely a must see. Join us for the Alternative Tour or go and check it yourself.

Trafo gallery is opened always from Wednesday to Sunday – 3 PM to 7 PM – Address: Hall no. 14 – Holešovická tržnice, Bubenské nábř. 306/13, Prague 7 – Holešovice

Accompanying program of the exhibition:

Guided tour with Michael Škapa and Radek Wohlmuth on Thursday, March 30 – from 17 pm.

Typography workshop with the author on Thursday, April 6 between 19 to 21 hours.

Great Alternative to Black Light Theatre in Prague

Prague is well known for its rich history, culture and art. One of the biggest Prague’s attraction would be definitely also the famous Black Light Theatre. Unfortunately, in recent years the quality in the capital rather deteriorates and thus our friends who are coming from Prague’s graffiti scene created an genuine alternative – Live Light Art Show at the Na Perštýně Theatre.

If you are searching for a unique and creative experience in Prague, definitely don’t forget to check out this one-of-a-kind show. Experience the romantic story of the City of a Hundred Spires, and immerse yourself in the magic of painting with light. On a luminescent canvas, you will see real action paint of realistic pictures that soon disappear only to be replaced by another. This inimitable light animation is enhanced by a musical accompaniment, including the famous Smetana’s Vltava.  See famous characters and buildings from the Czech history such as Charles IV., National Theatre, Jewish Cemetery, Golem, Charles Bridge and many more. Take an experience that you will never forget home from Prague. Custom-tailored performances are available as well.

Live performance of Light Art Show is on display daily until the end of August.

 

Where: Theatre Na Perštýně – Na Perštýně 359/6, Prague 1, 110 00
When: Daily from 8 PM

Top 10 Vegan and Vegetarian restaurants in Prague

Even though Czech cuisine is mainly based on meat. The new trend of more healthy food alternatives is slowly becoming more popular in the streets of Prague.
We selected top 10 Prague’s vegetarian, vegan and vitarian restaurants for you, so you don’t have to make your own research any more…

1. Plevel Restaurant

 Plevel Restaurant – source: www.facebook.com/restauraceplevel
First one was opened in one of the most hipster streets in Prague – Krymská couple of years ago. It has it all – nice interior, hip location and friendly and welcoming staff. The concept got so popular that there is a new one, more centrally located on Jindřišská street. If you are looking for a tasty vegetarian meal, then look no further. The meal offering changes with the seasons, so it’s always fresh. The thing I like about it is that the food looks and tastes like it is made with meat but it’s not at the end 🙂 Try the Portobello burger or vegetarian svíčková, you won’t regret…

Krymská 2, Prague 10

 

2. Lehká Hlava

Leká Hlava – Clear Head Source: Official facebook page

This is probably the most famous Prague’s vegan/vegetarian restaurant. When you walk in you will see why. Inside you can find 3 main rooms, each has it’s own unique design and style. My favourite one is on the picture above and it’s called significantly “Heaven”. Even though it’s slightly more expensive the meals are worth the price. There is always a great selection of delicious meals, home made fresh drinks and tasty deserts. This place is located right in the city centre and it’s really popular so reservation in advance is highly recommended.

Like Plevel, Lehká Hlava is really popular, so they opened a new, slightly bigger sister restaurant not far away from the original one in Týnská street. It’s called Maitrea. This is really a chilled out peaceful place. The interior is again something very special. Inside you will find two fountains, fireplace and a retreat with the Buddha – Maitrea (in the translation of “loving kindness”). They called the restaurant and the whole House of personal development, in which it is located after him. It’s definitely worth a visit, if only to check out the interior design. In addition to the permanent menu, which offers dishes inspired by many different cultures from around the world they also have a special daily offer – menu for 115 CZK, which includes a soup with main dish and water.

3. Vegan’s Prague

Dine like a king – Vegan’s Prague

This is another well established vegan place in Prague. It’s located in Nerudova street right underneath the Prague Castle. When you sit on their terrace underneath the Prague Castle complex you feel like a king. Vegan’s Prague offers various cuisines from around the world. Every day during the lunch time you can find there also a special lunch menu, which is very popular in Bohemia. They put emphasis on the ethical aspect of food, quality of ingredients and handmade preparation. In a short time you can look forward to new menu, which will be 100% free of soybeans.

5. Moment café and bistro

Another place that I would highly recommend. Moment is a café and a bistro serving wonderful desserts, wraps and sandwiches. Lunch menu is full of fresh, seasonal and local ingredients. To acomplish the meal they offer selection of beers from small breweries, local cider or special lemonade. Every time there is something new, not only in the menu – exhibitions, acoustic concerts, punk-rock sessions etc. This is really a community thing. Worth visiting.

6. RawCha

If you fancy raw food, this is another place in Prague that you have to visit. It’s central located, just around the corner from the Powder Tower (meeting point for the Alternative Tour). Lunch menu is literally a “world tour”, because every day it’s inspired by a different country or region and its cuisine. On regular menu you will find classics such as raw sushi and quiche. The restaurant also offers a great selection of tea.

This is a fairly new addition to Prague’s vegan world, but it’s already well recognized and respected. You can find it in the new foodie passage in Dlouhá street. MyRaw Café is not just a café with great raw desserts, which are prepared according to original owners recipes. It also offers a varied menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, which is a feast not only for vitarian gourmets, but also for the eyes of every guest.

10. Estrella

Last but not least our beloved Estrella. This nice and cosy place you can find in Prague’s downtown. They offer various dishes prepared with fresh and seasonal ingredients, inspired by Czech specialties and international cuisine. The place is quite small, so I would recommend to book a table in advance. Also keep on mind that they don’t accept credit cards, so cash only 😉

Opatovická 17, Prague 1

 

(11.) Loving Hut

 Even though I’m not a biggest fan of this concept, I decided to include it to my list as it’s really popular in Prague. Loving hut is something like McDonalds for vegetarians. You can find it in 8 different places around Prague. My favorite one is located right in Wenceslas Square. Loving Hut is known primarily for its lunch buffet offering. Mainly they offer Asian specialties almost indistinguishable from the original meat version, but also other world cuisine and desserts.
