Vytiska had already created something of a stir while studying at the Faculty of Art of the University of Ostrava and thanks to him the university was nominated for the StartPoint international competition of best art school graduates. In 2011 he won the UniCredit Bank Prague Young Photo Award at the Art Prague contemporary art trade fair, and the following year was one of the finalists of the Critics’ Award for Young Painters.
Though Vytiska studied at the intermedia studio at university, he treats “intermediality” more as a personally conceived process of the creation of the painted picture. There was not and is not space here for purity of expression, one voice and one language. Instead the buzzwords are hybridisation and the mutation of motifs, approaches and inspirations. However, this is not about an explosive darting between miscellaneous media, but rather a kind of implosive absorption, a personal synthesis of diametrically opposite aspects incorporated into one and the same medium.
