When Jan finished his studies at Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 2009, it was obvious that he was one of the best current students of Studio of classic panting (professor Z.Beran). Some can say that Jan is a hyper-realist, but the truth is that he only prefers the perfection of detail.
He paints figures, exciting scenes in real / unreal landscapes where you can feel the wind blowing on you while watching the painting. Animals using human level of intelligence, animals becoming human beings themselves.
In most of new paintings Jan is not using any real matter to mirror on the canvas. He creates unspecified objects which every eye marks different. Light displayed on the painting is only a complement needed to discover sources of beings hidden deep in the core of general substance.
His paintings are represented in many European art collections, including Czech National Gallery.
