My name is Pavel Čech, I was born in 1968 in the town of Brno.
I became a machine fitter and for five years I had repaired machines
in a big engineering plant, later I worked as a fireman.
Since 2004 I have been a free-lance painter.
I am married and have two sons.
I like overgrown gardens, view of the starry sky, butterflies
and beatles, good-hearted people, the smell of pine woods
and wild apples, tramping, flaking walls, indians, kite running,
books by Michal Ajvaz, rusty keys, old cinemas, clear water,
secrets... and I am trying to put it on the canvas
or write and paint books about it.
