Tomas HonzBio
Tomas Honz graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, but also studied Chinese painting and caligraphy in Taiwan and illustration in the United states.
He used to work as a conceptual designer and matte painter in the entertainment industry, but quit after a serious accident. Strong desire to stay independent and to work on his own projects have been driving him ever since.
Nowadays Tomas is an established artist known for merging traditional painting with modern technology. Tomas believes that the artist, before he starts to share his message, should spend some time exploring the world for himself. And Tomas does exactly that. His hunger for aquiring deeper insight into how things are make him travel around the globe. Equiped with sketchbook, portable oils or watercolors, he captures impressions on the go.
These plein air paintings are like memories. Easily the most valuable things that I have.” Tomas says.
Later in his Prague studio, he uses them as foundaitions upon which he builds his mysterious digital paintings or larger oil canvases that evoke feelings of silence, tension and expectation.

 

Some of Tomas’ artwork is currently represented by Galerie Art Chrudim and Nová Galerie.

 

Tomas is also a teacher of traditional painting techniques. Contact him to inquiry about upcoming workshops, personal tuition or purchasing an artwork.
