Peter STASTNY.

Born 1943 in Czechoslovakia, Peter has followed in the footsteps of his father Alois, an acclaimed painter. He, as well as Peter´s beloved mother Marie, were both very supportive and encouraged Peter to study not only at the Art College in Brno (painting, drawing, graphics), but to undertake also various private tutorial drawing sessions. In the late sixties Peter has left his homeland (due to the infamous Soviet Invasion) and lived subsequently in Vienna, Cape Town, Johannesburg and finally London. He has visited USA, many European countries including Scandinavia - and finally also - Greece! He fell instantly in love with the island of Crete and regards this island as probably the most beautiful place on Earth. He - like many other visitors or residents - loves its countryside, its history, its specific beauty, weather and its inhabitants. His love shows and reflects very clearly in his artistic works…
Back home in Prague he also produces technical and graphic designs for exhibition companies, advertising studios etc. His customers are not only from the Czech Republic, but also from Switzerland and England. Besides his artistic activites, he also works as a translator (English to Czech and vice-versa). His youngest son Philip successfully absolved a study at the University of Winchester in England and is currently employed as a proffessional archeologist.
