Marián is a painter, graphic artist, illustrator, and creator of fine arts and art objects. He lives and works in Poprad, Slovakia. Born right under the highest mountain range in Slovakia, the High Tatras, Marian‘s work is influenced by his real-world upbringing in a beautiful country, its folklore, and culture, as well as spiritual and mystical elements that were hidden in the world around him.
His ideas and inspirations usually come from the deep genesis of humanity, traditions as well as nature. Traditions not only from the Slovak culture but also from the entire cultural history of mankind.
