   Born in Prague (March 29th, 1983), currently living and painting in Central Bohemia. Tomas studied Secondary school of applied art in Prague, later continued at Faculty of fine arts VUT in Brno.

   In Tomas´s paintings you can feel the dynamics of move, individual story of each picture. Cold atmosphere of a house ruin can be contrasted with a feeling of experience of a nice warm summer day. On the next painting a team of surgeons operates precisely in  human body. Worry about too high level of naturalism is always compensated with a secret hidden behind a wide line of paint brush or, on the contrary, on a clean spot.

   Most of his paintings are collages formed with various figures and environment which originally didn´t match together, were completely separated stories. The very first impulse is usually a thought, idea to create a specific topic, or reaction to a socially important event.   Tomas combines blurry unidentified matter of objects with sharp detailed particular parts of the story on his canvases. Every painting plays it´s own story of people reacting to a difficult situation – storm, surgery, demolished structures, earthquakes etc.
