Home Years Roman Franta
Finalist - 1997

Roman Franta

Born in 1962

In his paintings, photographs and occasional installations, the painter cannot deny his unmistakable signature style. What is typical of him is his interest in the life of plants and animals he uses to compose clusters that create colourful effects or the individual objects of the image. He is fascinating for his composition solutions and his sense of detail which is primarily seen in the bodies of beetles he uses to compose his images. He also often employs an expressive painting technique with a dose of an ironic view of the world and the symbols of human society.
