Maroš Baran is an artist and fashion designer from Slovakia, currently based in Prague at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design. In 2014 he graduated in Printmaking and Graphics from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. His interest in fashion design started to develop throughout 2011; one year later he studied at Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht (Netherlands). Maroš worked an internship with the Belgian label AF VANDEVORST. Collections were presented as live multimedia events – combining the traditional aspects of a fashion show with video and performance art and accompanied by dark ambient music. Alongside his work as a designer, Maroš also applies himself to the fields of painting and drawing, his works having been presented in Slovakia and in collective exhibitions in Vienna and Tuzla. Fashion design works were presented in San Francisco, London, Tokyo, New York, Dubai, Brno, Bratislava and Prague.
