Pavel developed his love of art at an early age, drawing, painting

and molding for hours at a time. As a young child, he knew that

being an artist was the direction his life would take.

From his early training and formal learning in European Art Schools,

Pavel has mastered Commercial and Artistic Graphics, including Art

Design, Art Print and Calligraphy. He has learned how to apply

himself in various mediums. He is well grounded in the use of oil,

tempera, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, pen, pencil and charcoal.

Pavel has over 35 years experience in art design and industrial

design. But it was not until Pavel devoted his energy full time to Art

that he has felt free to discover his own artistic voice.

Pavel has named his own style of art “soul visualism”His work 

is based on Realism. However, he wants those who see his work to

feel the mood of the picture even with the absence of certain details,

allowing the mind to fill in the missing pieces. Pavel feels that his

talent for creativity is God given. He is inspired by people, nature

and being at peace with himself.


Pavel declares:

“I would not be able to continue growing with my new energy, my new vision and spirit, if it wasn't for my best friend for life, my  patient  and  understanding  wife  Genie.”



“I want my art to remind the viewer about the simple things that daily surround our lives but we miss and take for granted. This is my goal whether I paint a portrait, a beautiful landscape or a simple rose; I want people to say “um yes that’s it”.

I like realism. When you see my work I want you to feel the content as well. You should feel the hair, the cloth, the skin … I want people to not only see face in the picture but also feel the person soul and spirit.

People today live too fast and miss the details that complete the picture. I hope to remind people of those details when they see my paintings”.
