Artist’s Prague

In 2015 I moved to the Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. A city steeped in history and culture, and endowed with architectural splendour. Since then, I have explored many of the city’s famous and hidden wonders, sketchbook in hand. I want to capture the heart of Prague, like the artist explorers of the past.

So, let me show you the historical capital of Bohemia, through my artwork. See Prague through the eyes of an artist.

Photograph. ‘Statue of Attila Jozsef, Hungarian Parliament Building, Budapest.’

Beside the parliament building sits Hungarian poet Attila Josef. Plagued in life by mental health issues, his statue seems to be finally at peace. @davidasutton @sketchbookexplorer Facebook.com/davidanthonysutton #b&w #photography #budapest #hungary #travel #travelblog #hungarytourism #parliamentofbudapest #attilajozsef

Photograph 4. ‘Hungarian Parliament Building, Budapest, Hungary.’

After over a hundred years, it’s still the largest building in Hungary, and stunning when lit up at night. It’s architect, Imre Steindl, went blind before construction was completed. @davidasutton @sketchbookexplorer Facebook.com/davidanthonysutton #b&w #photography #budapest #hungary #travel #travelblog #hungarytourism #parliamentofbudapest

Photograph. ‘Terezin, Czech Republic.’

Graffiti left behind by Jewish prisoners and guards of the Terezin Ghetto. The 18th century fort, where Gavrilo Princip (the assassin who ignited WW1) died, held 150,000 Jews during WW2. 33,000 Jews died in the ghetto, and over 80,000 were sent on to concentration camps, including Auschwitz. @davidasutton @sketchbookexplorer Facebook.com/davidanthonysutton #b&w #photography #bohemia #czechrepublic #travel #travelblog #terezin #ww2

Photograph. ‘Laffitova, Žitenice, Czech Republic.’

Stunning view of Northern Bohemia. On the plains below lay the towns of Litoměřice and Terezin. Both steeped in history and stunning architecture, but also both standing as testament to a more recent dark past – the Jewish Holocaust. @davidasutton @sketchbookexplorer Facebook.com/davidanthonysutton #b&w #photography #bohemia #czechrepublic #travel #travelblog #laffitova #zitenice
