Júlia Drienovská from the magazine Naše Poľovníctvo talked to Peter Kľúčik about inspiration and his favorite animals.
Excerpt from the article:
Probably anyone who likes to return to the world of their childhood, in which, thanks to fairy tales, there could have been a seven-headed dragon and all sorts of monsters, a view of a leopard with spiral legs and a long neck resembling a corkscrew or other strange animal in your paintings, it puts a smile on his face and maybe a kind of ease. After all, in our dreams, nature can be like this! Or do your paintings have a different meaning and message?
P.K.: I wanted to put nature on an elevated place as the number one topic because we humans treat it terribly. If I want to draw attention to nature as an artist, there are two possibilities. I can either paint catastrophic, menacing and warning images or, conversely, focus on its endless inexhaustible beauty and diversity.
