My name is Irena Prochazkova and I was born in Tabor (south of Czech Republic) in 1973 but I currently live in Prague. All my pictures have been inspired by my travel experiences or images and some of them just by my normal life.I have been influenced by art styles such as impressionism, post-impressionism and expressionism that have never stopped fascinating me. My favourite painters are Monet, Van Gogh, Gauguin or Czech artists such as Špála and Slavíček.My work is full of colours especially blue, red and orange. I feel it this way and I express my mood by that as well.You will see a lot of ‘still life-paintings´ which I was painting during my tuition lessons under the academic painter Bedriska Uzdilova. I do paintings as well as drawings. I create portraits, sceneries, abstractions, compositions and ´still life-paintings´. I currently prefer using oil paint on canvas.
