When I first visited a gallery, I was completely entranced by the paintings on the wall. As I was looking at each of them slowly, I could not get enough of their beauty, and as I could not think of anything that would compare to this moment. I had not had such dreams in years but what I felt then was motivation enough for me to pursue an artistic career.
I stopped painting for a long time and I focused on photography because of commercial reasons. But, as once was said, if you want to paint and it is inside you, you will always keep getting back to it. It is one of the best ways to express your own freedom, the most authentic story about ourselves and our world.
“Follow me to another world. Yes, there are other worlds, beautiful and indescribable worlds. They cannot be compared with the feelings people have here on earth. Some may experience something similar, but only in their dreams. ”
I always wanted to paint the beautiful images I would see in my dreams and have done so since my first oil painting in 1999. I only recently realized the appreciation other people have for my art and was even awarded twice in an art competition named Umění Spektrum “(Art spectrum).
