I’m an entirely self-taught Czech artist based in Sydney. When I moved to Australia in 2013, I began painting almost non-stop.
The Australian flora, fauna and landscape is so incredibly inspiring, and I began to pour out this inspiration onto canvases. It’s like Australia awoke the part of me that used to paint when I was a child in the Czech Republic. I’ve had the opportunity now to display at several art shows (Camberwell, Box Hill, Albert Park, Brunswick). In 2019 and 2020 I was featured artist on The Block TV series.
My most used and favourite media is oil and acrylic on canvas. I just love the textures and visceral nature of the paint, and I find it’s very effective to get my feelings out onto the canvas.
My style is likely described as abstract, when I'm painting an abstract piece, I find myself diving deep into the colours and textures without any regard to what I’m ‘meant’ to do. There is no right and no wrong; it’s freedom and I just follow my hand and what it does next. I don’t overthink it and just enjoy the ride, but I hesitate to define myself only as an abstract artist since I love to paint anything that inspires me.
I love to express myself and speak to people through my art. I try to evoke emotions and make them feel as I feel, when I create the artwork.
Creating art is an expression of my thoughts, emotions and desires. It’s about sharing the way I experience the world.
