MgA. Jirka Houska

He studied at Secondary school of applied arts of Václav Hollar and at the Academy of fine arts in Prague (prof. Z.Beran studio). He specialises in figural painting - mostly portrait. One of his common inspiration is also a scenery, but sometimes sci-fi scenes or mysterious and scientifically unknown animals. This is related to his interest in natural sciences, preferably paleontology and kryptozoology. In 2015 he fully illustrated a book On The Path of Mysterious Animals, written by Jaroslav Mareš.
