Description: Andre Dluhos (b. 1940) in a small Czechoslovakian town, now part of Slovakia. Andre was only eight when he began to draw the forest and amber wheat fields that surrounded his village. Yet it was a Castle that stood high above his home that captivated him most and led him to draw its majestic lines from every imaginable angle and perspective. At fourteen he won his first art competition, an affirmation toward his goal to become a professional painter. Andre studied painting at the Bratislava School of Fine Arts and went on to travel across Egypt studying ancient art. This had a significant influence on his approach to art and led to a better understanding and comprehension of murals and mosaics. Andre realized that he could never achieve what was in his soul and heart and must leave his homeland. In 1969 after traveling, painting, and exhibiting throughout Hungary, Yugoslavia, and Austria, he immigrated to the United States with his wife Yary and son Peter. All my free hours then were devoted to the painting of the truths I held to be self-evident. Today, I know that the decision I made thirty years ago was right, and my paintings are a culmination of my learned truths throughout my life. Andre Dluhos
