Frantisek Strouhal, the artist

Frantisek Strouhal is an alchemist of ordinary and poet. Internationally renowned as a mixed media artist for his unique and original style and voice that stands on his own marked distinctly for its evocative introspection, enchanting nostalgia, and existential urgency. He is the owner of the art enterprise Mirage Studio.

One day as he stepped out of a small café where he was enjoying an espresso, he had a sudden realization that his life would shift. He knew that what he truly wanted was to express and share with others his understanding of himself and the world (human condition) through the media of his timeless visuals and inspirational writings.

His work is a reflection of his own personal renaissance; in an age when everything is driven by technology, he turned to antiquated methods to translate the language of heart and soul, subjected to his individual experience and expression. Through posture, personality, and the play of light, each image is designed to evoke thoughts, emotions, and moods that inspire and unravel our subconscious nature.

His aim is to capture the magic of life’s ephemeral yet eternal essence with engaging visuals that slowly pull you into a provocative and enigmatic world, short writings accompanying each image are to assist the reader like a guide on a journey of expansion and awareness.

His intention is to help people to awaken to their full potential with his luminous visuals and psychologically engaging and timeless writings.

 

 

Chantal Robert

Chantal Robert is the manager of the art enterprise Mirage Studio which is received internationally in art galleries, exhibitions, and publications. Beforehand she was an experienced health professional, both in holistic alternative healing and western medicine. Her years of spiritual practices and living close to nature led her to the study of spiritual psychology and deepen her knowledge of the human condition.

With her involvement in their art enterprise, she soon recognized the powerful effect that art has on the healing and wellbeing of its viewers. Scientific studies have demonstrated that art affects a person’s brainwave patterns, neurons, and immune system, thus changing one’s perception of pain, suffering, and anxiety. And with this awareness, she felt an imminent urge to share her understanding of how important, unique and irreplaceable each one of us is as participating members of the human family moving towards Unity consciousness.

 

 

Jakub Strouhal, the artist

Everything in life seems so fleeting; feelings belong more to moments than personalities, thoughts more to the ether than our minds. Art, like life, is a subjective experience, with universal underpinnings for both creators and the audience. No matter what your connection to a piece of work, when you interact with it, you have a conversation. Whether it is conscious or not, the spirit engages and a transaction is made.

Without the slightest notion of what I was getting myself into, I took up writing rhymes/hip hop lyrics at the age of twelve. What began as an opportunity to feel cool soon became an introspective journey that would shape the course of my life. As I merged myself with the process, I unknowingly touched on ideas that were beyond my immediate grasp— a visceral foreshadowing of a new sense of awareness, an awareness that brought with it its own confusion and horror. On the surface, I was developing my hip hop persona and working up the nerve to perform in front of friends and strangers, but in the undercurrent, I was getting lost in the abyss of my psyche, a foreign terrain where light and darkness would simultaneously blind and guide me.

I’ve since continued marveling at the creative process as I tumbled further down its rabbit hole. It sent me on an adventure into the world of hip hop, giving me a community I had an affinity with and found a place in. Ironically, I now sense that writing creates as much of a break as a bond with the community. This disconnect and restlessness led me here to you, in my father’s book of entrancing images accompanied by symbiotic poems and streams of thought.
