Stanislav Buban graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Bratislava. His work has been seen in group exhibitions in Slovakia, Germany and Austria and in solo exhibitions in Europe and the USA.

The portrait is of a former member of the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra who, without an income, was living alone in an apartment without electricity or running water. Buban decided to paint the musician to offer some financial support by paying him for modelling. During the final sitting, the subject received the news that he was to be evicted from his modest flat.
