Lubomir Typlt, 1975
I am a figurative painter from the Czech Republic.
In my paintings, I am dealing with the psychology of characters, which are often shown during mysterious activities. The situations they are placed in seem slightly surreal, dadaistic, or even absurd. I leave it to the viewer to decode the meaning and find an individual interpretation.
I use an expressive scale of primary colors. Thus my paintings are also known for their typical luminosity.
Next to studying painting in my home country, the Czech Republic, I am a graduate of the painting classes of Markus Lüpertz and A.R. Penck at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in Germany.
Since 2011 I paint in my studio, an old pub in a small village near Prague.
