Born in 1961 in Zlín, Czech Republic, currently living and working in Bratislava, Slovakia.
A man for whom the creation of art became a life-long passion through self-realisation and intense work, filled with doubt, searching and joy.
I mainly focus on drawing (mixed media on paper) and painting (predominantly oil on canvas).
In today's visual world filled of saturated images with exaggerated ornamentation and enhanced reality, I chose the atypical way of colour-poor, even monochromatic vision and unrefined style.
In my works I often portray a human journey - a journey of secrets, self-discovery and lost intimacy in a series Lost Steps , Other Places , Unknown Face , Stories in Us , etc. In the series ‘Earth of People - Earth without People’, I create a man’s decimated landscape – a human landscape without people. My works are based on permanent artistic realism which was recently represented by the ‘New Objectivity’ and ‘New Figuration’ movements. It is represented by outstanding contemporary artistic personalities such as Lucien Freud, Jenny Saville, Michael Borremans, etc. My art reflects the tactile need of contact with the work.
