Miroslav Mašek was born in Czech Republic. During 2012 Miroslav decided to come to Scotland and stayed here ever since. Currently Miroslav works as a Software Engineer in Glasgow. In 2019 he developed a strong interest in oil painting and In early 2021 Miroslav completed his Cityscape course with the American painter Gavin Glakas.
“Painting for me is a great hobby and way to relax. I really enjoy painting en plein air. Most of my inspiration comes from places which surround me daily and places having some meaning to me.”
2020 to 2021 Miroslav occasionally worked in Aberdeen and before his last trip to Aberdeen he wanted to capture the mood and feel of his favourite places in the area where he lived and that is why this collection of paintings was created.
