Author: Matyáš Chochola

Release year: 2020

The book THE SMELL OF SUCCESS is a manifesto of the creative freedom of the Czech artist and performer Matyáš Chochola, laureate of the Jindřich Chalupecký Prize from 2016. The multi-layered eclectic publication was created for almost 10 years.

As part of a strictly limited edition of 60 pieces, we offer for sale a narrative art publication, which Matyáš Chochola himself cut on a circular, numbered and signed with a golden petrol marker. Each book from this edition is thus a unique art artifact, in addition with variable screen printing on the cover.

The smell of success is a free literary-artistic experiment in which Matyáš Chochola depicts his own version of the world - a kind of dreamlike space-time, where streams of consciousness meet the wildness of the 90s, artistic reflections and, last but not least, shamanic-ritual meditations. During the visual spectacle, his gestural wordarts intertwine with raw animal drawings and surrealist visions of the artist Alexander Pushkin.

On the other hand, as Chochola himself claims: "The more you define it, the more it loses its meaning."
