Milan Kriz's Resume
Milan Kriz born in 1945, in very hostile times for all Europe, and,
indeed, for the former Czechoslovaquia. He spent his first years in his natal
town, Námest n./Osl., Czech Republic.
Looking for a way to express his inner feelings, he studied at the Fine-art
School in Brno and then obtained a superior degree at the Fine-art Prague
Academy, below the mentoring of the Masters Prof. Vincent Makovský and Prof.
He finally left his country and became an universal citizen, this hard
decision was taken, despite of his socialistic beliefs, based on the freedom limitations of the
soviet regimen; and, indeed, it soon influenced deeply his art motivations, inspiration and
techniques. Milan Kriz obtained the Venezuelan citizenship in 1983 and he currently lives in Caracas, Venezuela, while
his opus is broadcasting over the planet.
Milan Kriz defines himself as an humanist, and a perpetual seeker for the
global alter ego: the ultimate status for the spiritual evolution of mankind, in
his words: “Art is about freeing your mind and expressing emotions. Using the
raw material to find the inner image that it contains, trying to capture the
essence of the spiritual world that is all around us”. That is why his
creations feature what worldwide critics have realized as a deeply felt abstract
expressionism. His art pieces are made from a wide spectrum of classical and
modern raw materials and techniques: including sculptures of wood, marble,
coral, bronze, and even epoxy resin and bronze-ready positive originals in clay;
Milan Kriz's paintings are found most of oil on canvas but he uses oil on
formic too; his engravings were made most on hard paper with linoleum plates but
the artist has realized that ancient wood is also good for some works.
