Antonín Střížek

Střížek is one of those painters for whom the medium of painting is important in itself. Individual elements of a picture are in mutual harmony, although not always do they correspond exactly to reality. Whether the subject is a biblical story, a street or a still life, his paintings make a calm, compact impression. Střížek narrates stories through painting forms composed with a consistent precision and responsibility for the image's resulting entirety towards the viewer.
