How old are you?

Where are you from?
Ostrava, Czech Republic

How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
Since my childhood I’ve been told I have “talent” but I didn’t pay much attention to it. Drawing was back then just a “thing I am good at” and I didn’t care much about that. I took it more seriously roughly 3 years ago and since then I am working on my self to get better and spread my art into the world. My specialty is dark surrealism. I find inspiration in life, feels and experiences.

Do you have a job in the art industry? If So, what’s one thing you don’t like about it? If no, where would your dream job be?
No I don’t. My dream job doesn’t refer to art industry that much since I am student at technical university. I like both “worlds” of art and engineering. So my real dream job would be combining those two branches together. But also I have to say that being a professional artist is more attractive to me.

Do you have a favorite Artist?
H. R. Giger

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
I don’t know. Maybe that I graduated high school? But that’s more like a “society related” accomplishment. So far the greatest accomplishment is the awareness of that you can be anything you want if you work hard enough.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
Engineer with degree of car engineerin, well payed job and also being recognized as an artist, a little bit of fame can’t hurt anyone also 🙂 Having family, good friends and enjoying the life from both sides of art and technical stuff.

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci or Gary Vaynerchuk

How is one way you make money with your art?
So far I’m not making any money. Currently I am in the state of figuring out the process…

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
Las Vegas, I love nature too but I also like to observe the bustle of life.

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software


Any advice for young artists?
I’m one myself so I can say just to work and let the world know you’re there.
