Tomas Predka is an abstract painter. His paintings deal with contemporary flashes of the world and its fundaments. The works are based on the process of painting itself and collective memory. There are many signs of derived photography combined with a personal experience. He follows intuitive touch and attention on texture, line and used the material. With his cross – processed paintings he is balancing with a notion of contemporary phenomena.
