Hostivice, Czech Republic
I was born and I grew up in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, and studied theology at Charles University. Despite having no formal art education, I was a fine art photographer for a number of years. At first, as I was living by the sea in the United Kingdom, I majored on seaside photography, gradually switching over time to more abstract photography and then finally making a move towards abstract digital paintings.
I try to see something uncommon in well-known biblical texts but believe my paintings also have something to say about the real world. I don’t provide explanations or a rationale for my paintings, as in my opinion, the goal of abstract art is to allow an audience to understand and appreciate paintings without the need for detailed explanations from the artist.
I live in Prague with my wife and two children and am working for a Christian based blind charity. David Wojkowicz is the pseudonym I use for my abstract paintings.
