I was born in 1980 in Prague. Generally speaking, I deal with painting since my childhood. I did not study fine arts in college. My knowledge of this theme is based mainly on observing matters from the world of art and learning from mistakes. As far as my professional education, I have obtained both, a bachelor`s and a master`s degree in corporate finance. I was also involved in studies of architecture for several years. Painting itself represents an act of passion and a truly high interest in my life. When I was eleven I achieved the third position in a nationwide fine art contest announced by The National Museum of Prague. There were over 1.700 other participants. Later I came back to painting during my university studies. At those times I was strongly influenced by clear and rigid serigraphy works of pop-art. I made a lot of serigraphs in this fashion and as I think exhausted this style quite properly. I do not suppose this working era to be particularly fruitful in bringing new ideas into existence. It was just about learning some commonly used techniques.
There are several kinds of painting I perform at these days. I am interested in the depiction of real objects as well as non-objective painting. What I really want to do is to develop an original and easy-to-recognize pencil. For this purpose I chose abstract painting as I presume it is always easier to follow innovations on this field. Some of my abstract works stem from action painting. This style attracts me for it can be considered a retro (considering all the great painters of abstract expressionism) but there is a decent shift from the former type of action painting in my work at the same time. My aim for future days is to point out this shift and make it more obvious.
Generally I like easy colour schemes and non-complicated shapes to be used in abstract painting. This is a kind of puristic tendency. Another feature of my paintings is relation to structures, patterns that should be realized as natural.
My works have been published at REZIDENCE – a Czech magazine focused on a culture of living (issues 6/2005 and 3/2007).
