Welcome to profile of artist Cyreal.
Cyreal alias Cyril Kučera pochází z Ostravy a je členem mezinarodniho label/crew Arkona creation a ostravske deko/festivalove crew CUfo Bufo team. Vytváří psychedelické, fluorescentní Uv aktivní dekorace do klubů, na festivaly, párty, open air a další akce (čajovny, výstavy, svatby).
Psychedelické, Uv aktivní dekorace jsou základní součástí každé dobré ( nejen) psytrance party, protože spojují hudbu s výtvarným uměním a celek je tak mnohem působivější. Svítivé mandaly, dekorace, plátna, objekty, materiály, symboly a vzory vytvářejí magický svět, vizuální atmosféru.
Dekorace jsou převážně malovány na plátna, ale i jiné materiály, použitím fluorescenčních akrylových barev. Uv aktivní dekorace jsou jedním z party-faktorů jenž navozují možnost „cestovat“ do jiných dimenzí, do světa fantazie a imaginace, mimo běžnou realitu.Ve své práci s Uv dekoracemi se Cyreal snaží vytvořit párty prostředí více barevně živé , kreativní a komunikativní.
Dekorace jsou hlavně abstraktní, ale i konkrétní, organické a neorganické a zahrnují mnoho experimentů a užití mnoha technik, stylů a témat. Práce je založena hlavně na abstraktizaci a ornamentu přírodních, technických a architektonických a jiných fenoménů.
Inspiraci nachází například v práci surrealistů, futuristů a dalších průkopníků moderního umění, technologiích, cyberspace, budoucnosti, historii, mikro a makrokosmu a jiných zdrojích.
Cyreal zakládá v roce 2003 projekt Cybofunk, ale práce jejich členů spadá už do období dřívějších, kdy byli součástí projetku Fluorobotanics.
Mimo tyto aktivity se Cyreal věnuje i pořádání psytrance parties a festivalů ( Cosmic frog 2010, 2011, 2012, Vibe 2012, 2013, Ufo Bufo 2013 , 2014) .
Cyreal vystavoval a spolupořádal parties hlavně v Česku, Slovensku, v Londýně a v mnoha dalších zemích Evropy a take třeba v Indii, Thajsku, Kambodzi.
Cyreal alias Cyril Kučera ( Ostrava, Czech republic) creates psychedelic fluorescent art decorations.
The decorations are mostly cotton sheets painted with acrylic fluorescent paint.
In his work he tries to communicate our awareness of all beauties and often obscurities of world.
Cyreal is part of art/deco/festival crew Ufo Bufo team from Ostrava. who are trying to make the party place more colorful, more creative. His decorations are abstract, some of them are concret. He is also part of label/crew Arkona creation .
He tries to express how we perceive the universe, the divinity, the organic and unorganic world, the female and male elements. He is trying to work with the place of the party to do it more various.
All his effort is made because he loves painting, because of meeting people (like psytrance freaks:) who are his motivation to do his decos better and better and because he loves the atmosphere for the psychedelic parties and its music of course.
Cyreal was member of Cybofunk crew witch was found in 2003, before that it was part of Flurobotanics decoration crew.
Psychedelic decorations and ornamentations are a substantial part of every good psy-trance party, they help to reach higher states of consciousness. “Psychedelic” means “mind-evolving, mind-broadening”.
In Greek this word is composed of “psyche” – soul, and “delun” – disclose. The decorations are one of the factors enabling “travelling” into other dimensions, into world of imagination and fantasy beyond ordinary reality.
Decorations can be installed indoors ( clubs, chillout, tearooms as well as outdoors ( festivals).
Artwork includes many experiments – use of various techniques, materials, styles and themes. The content is often based on “abstractization” and ornamenting natural, technical, architectonical and other phenomena. His work is a means of communication.
It is an expression of his feelings, visions, emotions and our energy. He animates our images. They live lives of their own, they are born, they grow, evolve and die.
Nature, love, technology, cyberspace, mystic stories of travelling into other dimensions, micro and macrocosmos, future and history – these are another sources of inspiration.
The fluorescent glare of landscapes, mandalas, architectonical and technical elements, abstract ornaments and symbols…this magical world of decorations creates a visual atmosphere which is one of the essences of a good psy-trance party.
Psychedelic music is based mainly on a “story” of psychedelic sound. In combination with psychedelic decorations, it can take you away to other worlds, foreign landscapes and galaxies. Everything is communicating and speaking not only to our imagination.
In the state of intensive enjoyment we reach a harmony with all the universe and with oneself. A psy-trance party experience is a sacrament bringing love into our souls.
