In this „punk“ serie he systematically studies nocturnal butterflies in their atypical enviroment – our urbanized spaces. These  natural creatures have developed a sophisticated mimicry system that works in their natural environment of trees and bark. Our urbanized enviroment makes them feel out of place, however they are attracted by its strong unnatural lighting. Soft surface of their wing contrast sharply with artificial surfaces of urbanized  enviroments. However, this creature is associated with night life and underground music, at the same time it carries a strong attribute of vulnerability, transience and short life.  

1988 Bratislava, Slovakia

Graduaded from department of Painting at Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava. He is four-time finalist of the Painting of the year award in Slovakia. During his studies he found his way to to "dark painting". He excluded elements that destroy the color order and started working with achromatic colors. For him, they became a gesture of articulating his own feelings. He does not search for topics, they walk around him. It’s form of diary  that he “writes” inspired by surroundings. The rough handwriting and pasty deposits also reflects his connection with underground punk music and rock bands. Artist regulary exhibits in Slovakia and other European countries.
