Comments on Jindrich Degen’s Artwork
Thank you for your paintings in which I see light and hope. I like the harmony of colours and shapes which give the impression of movement. Your artwork reflects optimism.
Ali D. (United Kingdom)
The colours in Jindrich’s art are very positive, reflecting optimism, as well as purity and wholesomeness. His versatility is amazing – the way his artwork ranges from impressionism and abstract to portraits and still lifes.

I like colours, freedom, and the resulting joy. This is exactly what I feel when I look at Jindrich’s pictures. I can imagine having some of them in my home.
Radka S. (Czech Republic)
I looked through Jindrich’s artworks and found them fascinating. I especially like the painting “In the Forest.” There I feel that I understand the forest – being able to perceive how it lives, grows, and receives nourishment from the roots.
Drahomira O. (Czech Republic)
Many thanks for the gifts that you have brought to us all through your long life of music and art. We are all the richer for your presence! I was interested to see so many mandala-like pieces – conveying a sense of completion – though I think my favourite work is “In the Forest”. Once again, thanks for the inspiration!
