A Brno painter and graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, Petr Veselý is devoted to painting, drawing and creating objects whose subject are common things from his surroundings. For instance, furniture, books or doors. However, he also paints landscapes and is engaged in so-called text drawings. The whole process of creating a work is important for him, not just the result or the creation itself. In 1986, Veselý became co-founder of the Tovaryšstvo malířské (Guild of Painters) group. The other members were Kokolia, Kvíčala and Steklík.
