No door is closed to a stubborn scholar.

Artist’s Statement

Daniel Novotny (b. 1985, Slovakia) is an award-winning self-taught artist living and working in Slovakia. His work was displayed in a number of international exhibitions.

Daniel paints primarily in watercolor. More recently he’s been captivated by the unassuming beauty of paper cutous.

Whatever his medium, Daniel focuses on composition through deliberate design. Nature is the source of his inspiration for both physical and metaphysical reasons. It provides a peek into the construction of universe, showcasing the optimal configuration of all things.
