Michal Pěchouček

Michal Pěchouček is an extraordinary artist who not long ago worked more frequently with a needle and thread than with a brush and paints. He made his mark among the general public in particular with sewn pictures of sleeping and awake persons in or without pyjamas from the Pohádky na dobrou noc (Bedtime stories) cycle. Although his textile pictures are still the most famous part of his work, they are certainly not the only form used by this laureate of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award and member of the Board of the Jindřich Chalupecký Society. He also devotes himself to painting, photography, video as well as theatre direction.
