Biography

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