About the artist

Born and raised in Highlands of Bohemia this fellow loves visual creativity since he was a little child. His big influences from such times were Czech illustrator Zdenek Burian and great painter Alphonz Mucha. In recent years he’s influenced mainly by golden age of illustration from US (Norman Rockwell, J.C Leyendecker, N.C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle, Cornwell and many others). Main topics of his work include figure, portraits and visual storytelling either from the realm of the fine art world or illustration: “I think that a line between illustration and Fine art is really blurred and often merges together. In both cases it is necessary to know all the keystone principles to produce high quality work regardless of the medium.” That is one of the reasons that Petr loves to study old masters from renaissance till present days. “I think that studies of such a discipline as a fine art and illustration is ongoing and never ending process and I believe that my “art degree” will be the amount of work behind me at the end of my life.”
