Tomas Tichy was born in Prague in 1984, where he lives and works. After obtaining the degree at the Academy of Fine Arts of Prague, he is continuing with a PHD in the same University.

He represents in an original way the new artistic trend of emergent art in Czech Republic, and he links, with originality, the pictorial quality and the technical study to the thematic research, combining classicism and innovation.

In the recent years he partecipated in several exhibition and he was finalist at The Columbia Threadneedle Prize, Celeste Prize, Art Prize CBM (Turin, Prague, London).

The rapidly developing works of Tomáš Tichý present one of the most original concepts of the new wave of Czech painting. He has been able to connect well-mastered and thoroughly studied painting techniques with the ability and will to keep searching for and discovering new themes for his paintings. This makes his work part of the general global trend striving to revitalise more-or-less “classical” painting by addressing current topics. [Jan Kříž]
