Jan Mateják

Czech Republic

Jan Matěják focuses on teaching and painting oil paintings with the layered technique of the old Flemish masters and their direct painting methods. He specializes mainly in the Renaissance layered painting technique and the study of technical aspects of old master techniques.

His goal is not only to rediscover the qualities, skills and knowledge of the old masters, but above all, to spread this knowledge and skill across regions, countries and continents to people who long - as he once did - to paint a classical work.

Driven by an inner urge, he created and operates websites on his own, where not only instructional texts, but also, PDF files and instructional videos are available free of charge. Thanks to this philanthropic approach, those interested in this art can not only begin to learn the basics of these skills , but above all avoid the oversteps, mistakes and dead ends that are inherent in all beginnings.
