Wilfried Prager (Paris, 1964) is a graduate in International Relations from the American University of Paris. Throughout his travels Prager discovers contemporary art, and this passion leads him to study photography at Parson's School of Design in New York and art history at the Ècole du Louvre.

Prager held his first exhibition in 1989, with a painting style inspired by the American abstract expressionism and also in the works of Antoni Tàpies. A year later, in the mid-90’s, Prager meets Czech painter Miroslav Moucha who introduces him to the Czechoslovak art scene and with whom he begins a long collaboration. In Prague he fulfils several exhibitions and in 1998 decides to move to Bohemia, where he established his studio.  From that moment, Prager’s painting experiences a major change towards neo romanticism with the appearance of fragile silhouettes in spaces of scattered light.
In 2003, the artist settles in Barcelona where his work evolves into a landscaping without figures. In his Barcelona workshop the space and shape of his new creations return to abstraction, and the intangible border between light and shadows generates a more intense paint, more poetic, a painting born form the desire to formulate the world from colours and shapes.

Prager has a large resume of solo and group exhibitions as well as his work is represented in private collections in Europe, USA and South America.

ÀMBIT Galeria d’Art is pleased to present “Ad Infinitum”, in which Wilfried Prager shows us his three-dimensional universe of chromatic sensations shaded by light;
signs that use colour as support and turn the artistic expression in a daring display of polychrome emotions. In the words of JF Yvars: “Art in the service of fantasy and the fractal discovery of the enigma-light, that unsolvable unknown that conditions the look of time.”
