Luděk Rathouský

Rathouský explores the possibilities of visual language and chooses procedures and subjects which are frequently untraditional in painting. A self-portrait painted using his own blood, paintings as ironic commentaries on the current situation in society or on the mass media, or the transformation of the legacy of Christian visual culture and values, all these are the forms of painting expression of one of the Rafani group members. Currently, Rathouský works at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno as head of the Painting Studio.
