Janosch feiertag’s artistic practice focuses on interpersonal relations. In this context, a local reference is very important to him. He asks himself how social microcosms and their specific characteristics, such as a village or a street, can be applied to problems and issues affecting society in general and how we can learn from them. The starting point of his artistic research is often encounters in public space.
Feiertag studied visual communication and fine arts at the Kunsthochschule Kassel, DE and at the Jan Matejko Academy of fine Arts, Krakow, PL. In 2017, during his studies, he opened the FEIERTAG gallery in Kassel which is accompanied by a public billboard. The gallery is co-run with Hamburg based artist Malte Stiehl.
Feiertag lives and works in Kassel as a freelance artist, illustrator and curator.
