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)”.
Below you can see different stages of my painting process – from initial sketches including some digital drawings made in my phone to the final work.
