A native of Czech Republic, Ales Pancner began his art studies at age 6. He studied at LSU Art School in Uherske Hradiste under the supervision of Rudolf Kubicek. After graduation, he continued private study with academy professor Pavel Vavrys. He moved to the United States in 1988 and started to show his paintings in Chicago the very same year.
His intense color expressions have harmonies of emotion and energy. Partially withdrawn from reality, yet not abstract, his style has an element of mystery, suggesting rather than defining.
"I love to paint people, their characters and scenes, that influenced me and our whole society in a major way. Each painting has a message and meaning to me. Most of my paintings are painted in several layers of paint - just like our lives. There is a purple under orange - like fairness under destiny."
Pancner's artwork can be found in private and corporate collections in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Holland, Germany, Spain, Australia and the United States.
