My name is Irena Prochazkova and I was born in Tabor (south of Czech Republic) in 1973 and I currently live in Prague. I have had a special relationship with fine art since my childhood. Every time I had a spare few moments I took a few crayons and started to draw.I have been influenced by the work of the Czech academic painter Bedriska Uzdilova with whom I have been painting for the last nine years. In the past I was studying with the Czech academic painter Teodor Buzu. I am a member of the Black Canvas International Art Comuniny by painter Alexander Onishenko.
I have been influenced by art styles such as impressionism, post-impressionism and expressionism that have never stopped fascinating me. My idols have alwyas been old masters such as Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Monet.All my pictures have been inspired by my travel experiences or images and some of them just by my normal life. 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. 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.
