Curriculum vitae

I was born on September 19, 1966 in Trstená, Orava region, in the teachers family. After finishing the grammar school I continued studying at the Faculty of Education in Banská Bystrica, Department of Art Education and Slovak Language. I focused more on art and completed my diploma thesis with a set of landscape paintings. After graduating, I worked as a head of the marketing department at the Children's and Youth Dome, later in a publishing house, a graphic studio, and as the head of the art department at the Basic Art School in Turčianske Teplice. During my work I started my own graphic activities and left the school to work freelance.

Work

I was dedicating myself to art activities right after graduation, but the circumstances and the graphic work did not allow me to further develop my artistic activities. I was involved in commercial graphics and publishing. I regularly edited books for publishers and published by myself. With the cartoonist Bruno Horecký I founded the children's magazine Fľak in 1998. I have been sporadically creating something new all the time. But talking about my artistic activities I'm mainly painting the landscapes. The nature of Slovakia is beautiful and it is an inexhaustible source of ideas for an artist. Starting in 2014, I began to exhibit and intensify my creative activities.

My style

My main theme in the creation of endless variation of the Slovak landscape. I try to identify myself and be well recognizable. I paint the landscape with a technique in which I put coarse layers of material on the canvas, creating a relief and like this I capture landscapes shape and create details. With a mass of material, I create the foundation of the composition, which I paint in colour. I also use reflective colours, metallic sprays, and slices of gold to highlight a mood. Because the expression of images changes by changing the light, throwing shadows of structures and shining metallic surfaces, their reproduction does not reach the level of personal experience. I like to welcome you to one of the exhibitions, or we can arrange for a personal visit in my studio.
