Michal Singer (b. 1959) - one of the most outstanding artists of our time who made his way to the position of a respected author through his original style and enormous energy. He paints, draws, does graphics, creates collages and works in applied arts. He also writes original essays, poetry and prose with a philosophical perspective. His works are represented in the collections of prominent state-owned and public institutions: for example, his works are included in the permanent collection of contemporary art of the National Gallery in the Trade Fair Palace. At the same time, he belongs to the most sought after artists among private collectors. In 2003, the theory-of-art jury of the Pars journal praised him as the best artist in the Czech Republic. Five years later he was nominated by the National Gallery for the Sovereign European Art Prize. In 2009, he won a honourable mention in the Graphics of the Year contest; this year, his success has been repeated. For the twenty-first anniversary of the Argo publishing house, he illustrated a book by the Hellenistic poet Apollonius of Rhodes Argonautica; two years ago, he and a decadent poet K. H. Krchovský published an original book of illustrated poems called Singer/Krchovský.
