internationally recognized artist, Kravjansky was the Chairman of the art department of Czechoslovakia’s State
Television, where he created numerous designs for operas, ballets, and theatrical productions. Having left his
native country for North America in 1968, today he resides in Canada, where he writes and publishes his own
poetry via his own production company, and creates limited edition graphic works.

technique, Kraviansky’s works explore his own personal relationship with nature and history. He says about

images are meant to create an effect of something that is important to me, in which implication can be found. In
the variety of visual images created from my explorations of nature, history or of the current happenings, this
suggestion is revealed. If you allow yourself to withdraw within yourself and listen quietly, my art, I hope, can help
you to hear the world , to discover your own meaning or just entertain you with dancing lines and playfully
