Klára Doležalová

"I am a Prague-based artist focusing on portraiture and abstract art, painting mainly in oils but also using other media and materials, such as gold or silver leaf, pastel and acrylics. I love poetry, jazz and classical music and these are my greatest sources of inspiration."

"I'm a painter and translator based in Prague. I paint mostly in oils using the alla prima technique and my main focus is on realistic portraiture and jazz themes. I also create abstract pieces which are often inspired by poetry or music. Recently I've started using gold and silver leaf, creating an entire collection of paintings entitled "Hidden Secrets" and I plan to explore the possibilities of gold and other metals in my future works.

I studied painting with Raj Chaudhuri, a Denver-based artist who was the best tutor I could ever imagine and had the opportunity to meet his great teacher Quang Ho - both of them have been my inspiration ever since. I also studied portrait painting at Studio Escalier in France and attended several figure drawing and plein-air painting courses in the Czech Republic."
