Famous Tag

I am glad I can finally share with you my latest painting “Famous Tag”. What inspiried me to make this painting was a casual autumn walk in the Jiřího z Poděbrad Square in Prague’s Vinohrady district. The first thing you spot  in the square  is a  monumental building – The Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord. It took me a long time to finish this painting as I was considering many compositions and colour schemes.  After a while of roaming around the square I noticed  another interesting structure that I wasn´t able to identify. It seemed a  little bit strange  to me, especially as it was placed so closed to the church.  This scenery appeared intriguing.  I liked the contrast between the two very different objects – one being religious and the other technical and functional structure. What made me even more attraced to it was the graffiti on  its walls. It struck me that  it was the same graffiti I had seen in another places in Prague . For that reason the title of this painting is “Famous Tag)”.
