Kamil Vojnar

1 07 2015

There isn’t much information on Vojnar. His work has this wispy spiritual quality to it. Or maybe its just years of brown outs. I always find it strange to see how many artists who grew up behind the Iron Curtain have surreal work that deals in many ways in flight. Or escape. And the heavy religious images.

Kamil Vojnar was born in Moravia, Czechoslovakia, in 1962 in the middle of the Cold War. He studied at the School of Graphic Arts in Prague. After he completed his military service as a tank commander he immigrated to the United States. He finished his education at the Art Institute of Philadelphia and the Art Students League in New York.

For a period of 10 years he ran an image/design studio in New York, where he “created countless book and CD covers for a wide range of US-based and international clients.” His passion, however, was to be an artist and do his personal work. He found a quiet refuge in St. Remy de Provence in southern France.
