„Wood is beautiful and is a work of nature. We give it a shape. Like this, it becomes the work of our hands and our imagination.“
My name is Michal Šrotíř.
Since my childhood I was interested in anything in connection with fine arts. I have taken my first steps in regards of fine art in Olomouc, town where I was born. I was visiting lots of fine arts clubs for youths ( drawing, painting, modeling, etc.) So no wonder that I have started my elementary education in the only elementary art school in Olomouc in the age of 7.
I have actively dealt with woodcarving since I was 12 and that would be the main reason in choosing Secondary arts school in Tovacov and the subject Woodcarving. After I have succesfully passed the graduation I found work in the field as a restorer of stone monuments and fine arts plasterer.
I have become very experienced as I had a chance to work in this field abroad as well. ( London , Switzerland ) And must admit that experiences gained abroad has improved my point of view towards fine arts.
I deal with woodcarving on a daily bases as it is my hobby and part of every day job in my studio in Prague. My work is based on the attempt to approach the most detail of a given artwork. But what I like the most, is realization of my own imaginations and artworks. As a material I prefer wood of a lime tree as it provides lots of oportunities for a rendition of detailed elements and surface finishes.
Into the wood most often I create abstraction and historical styles, that in connection with modern times creates an original design. It is wooden carved picture frames along with sculptures and reliefs what can be concidered as my the most often production. Further on it is esthetic carvings on the furniture, Bethlehems and additional design items such as wall clock and various tiny sculptures.
Everything I do is beeing realized on the basis of mutual agreement or proposals from the clients or those I can propose separately on my own, but according to your wishes.
