The painter, Alžběta Müller, was born in Usti nad Labem in
the Czech Republic in 1972. Today she lives and works in Munich. She attended
the SPŠ Grafická, a graphics school in Prague, where she developed her passion
for depicting people, which she then further intensified at the art of nude
painting courses at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and the University JE
Purkyne in Usti nad Labem.
The heart's desire for creativity
In 1995, at the age of 23, Alžběta Müller came to Germany,
where she attended the DTP Academy in Neu Isenburg and worked as a graphic
designer for advertising agencies in Frankfurt and Munich. Lacking satisfaction
from her uncreative work, she decides in 2001 to fully devote herself to her
passion, painting, creating self-portraits and portraits of friends and family
for which she mostly used her own photographs.
The human as an individual
Alžběta Müller's works are about humans as individual on
their quest for discovering their own identity. Her large format portrait
paintings are a mixture of drawing with chalk and charcoal and painting with
acrylic and oil paint. The viewer finds faces of melancholic and thoughtful men
and women with a strong expression and yet vulnerable charisma, which allow him
to explore his own ego.
A creative painter on her road to success
The works of Alžběta Müller have been exhibited in
galleries and at art fairs in Munich, Prague, or Regensburg, as well as in
museums in Munich and Usti nad Labem in the Czech Republic.
