Pavel Rehurek is a Czech artist who is currently living and working in Vancouver, Canada. His fine art photography and fusion of digital media demonstrate his passion for the figurative, abstract, expressionist style of art. He offers his unique works digitally and printed on paper.
Completely self-taught, Rehurek’s innate and skillful sense of colors and forms immediately capture the viewer's attention. His suspenseful, if not bizarre compositions are juxtaposed in unique subject orientations. He achieves his inimitable expression initially in the photographic stage. He then goes through the processes of cropping and alteration that enhances textures, colors and shapes. The final results are images that become tactile and desirable, easy to communicate with. His background in portrait photography cannot be ignored.
It is no surprise that Paul Rehurek’s work has found its way into collections in Canada, U.S., Czech Republic, Japan, South Korea, Switzerland and other countries.
“I have always understood a good artist to be a 'mirror' to the world outside us and within -- no comments and no statements, because what we create gets an interpretation anyway -- by our artistic instinct, our subject or media we choose. Beauty exists in spite of all of us. It has its own lips. I must not speak for her. I just mirror her image through the filter of my heart.”
