by Jan Mikulka
Jan Mikulka gained a master’s degree from the Academy of Fine Arts, Prague. Mikulka’s work has been seen numerous exhibitions in the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic.
The portrait is of Mikulka’s friend Jakub, whom he has known since childhood. Jakub works as a documentary film maker and the artist aimed to: ‘Capture his sensitive nature at a short distance.’ The portrait also offered the opportunity to experiment with a range of light effects in Jakub’s hair and skin tones.
