David Černý is an internationally famous Czech sculptor whose works you can come across in many places in Prague. The artist gained notoriety in 1991 by painting a Soviet tank pink. The tank served served as a war memorial in the centre of the then Czechoslovak capital, hence Černý’s act of civil disobedience was considered hooliganism and he was briefly arrested. Over the years that followed, he gained fame for his numerous controversial works, such as Crawling Babies, Two Peeing Guys or Nation for Itself Forever.
