Atelier Jan is a label incorporating the work of two artrists – Tamara and Jan Brabenec – working with leather and creating objects d´art from it.
Tamara makes leather jewellery – bracelets, necklaces, brooches and belts, tranforming leather into elegant shapes. Sometimes she incorporates precious stones to enhance or off set colour and style.
Jan concentrates mainly on pictures created from leather. He also decorates other objects such as old chairs, screens, wall clocks, mirrors, masks, caskets, folders and place mats with his leather art form. Another aspect of his art is drawings on paper or canvas and book illustrations.
Pictures by Jan have been displayed in many exhibitions in the Czech Republic and Austria, also in Berlin, Brussel, Rome and in Croatia.
From 1978 until 2014 his works formed the main part of the artistic decoration of Hus House in Konstanz.
You can see and purchase Brabenec work of art at Atelierjan Gallery in Vienna (near the museums area of th town and picturesque Spittleberggasse) or visit Janś atelier in Prague Old Town at Uhelný Trh No 10.
