In his art, Petr champions absolute freedom for the viewer, encouraging personal interpretation and connection. This openness invites audiences to engage with the artwork on a deeply personal level, forming their own narratives and emotional responses. Each piece reflects Petr’s current state of mind, embodying personal attitudes, empathy, and contemplation.
