Born May 4th, 1961, Taras Loboda is a Ukraine Artist living in Prague (Czech Republic). He was born into the family of I.I.Loboda, the famous Ukrainian artist. His work is of thematic compositions, portraits, landscapes, still-lifes. The artist persistently and purposefully develops three main motives: woman’s portrait and act (body with melodious lines, a look with a sad solitude feeling), strict classic still life and a phantom landscape.
I first discovered Loboda while in Prague on one of the many trips there to work. While taking a break I decided to visit and tour the Prague Castle (founded in around 880), the crown jewel of this city that has maintained it’s medieval and architectural legacy that incorporates gothic and baroque, rococo and art nouveau. It truly is like the fairytales we read about as children.. Adjacent to the Charles Bridge, I find this city one of the most fascinating in Eastern Europe.
