Karel  Chaba

Biography

Karel Chaba was born 3rd August 1925 in Sedlec. Artistically was educated privately. He never belonged to an artistic movement; its unprofessional training was the cause for the originality of his paintings. Chaba created his paintings of Prague, not as a copy of reality, but his dreams of Prague. Most of the paintings he created in the silence of his studio. Since 1962 he worked as a freelance artist. His work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad. He died 25th August 2009.
