“I love space – the endless sky, the comforting clouds, and the horizon, which challenges us to cross it.”
Theodor Pištěk, 1984
Theodor Pištěk was born on 25 October 1932 into a family of artists in Prague. He studied under Vratislav Nechleba at the Academy of Fine Arts, from which he graduated in 1958. Besides painting, Pištěk has also established himself as a much sought-after costume designer, having worked on more than a hundred feature films, including Markéta Lazarová, Valley of the Bees, Shortcuts, Three Wishes for Cinderella, Valmont, and The People Versus Larry Flynt. In 1985, he won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design for his work on Miloš Forman’s Amadeus. In addition to his work as a painter and costume designer, Pištěk also used to be a professional race car driver, a career he left behind in 1973. He is one of today’s most important Czech painters, whose extensive body of work stretches from the late 1950s to the present day.
