Prague, Czech Republic
"Hi all, I'm Jeremiah Palecek. A painter, blogger, and Nerdcore Hip Hop musician. I moved to Prague, Czech Republic over 4 years ago and quickly situated myself in the heart of the city. I create paintings and music based on video games and the internet, and blog about what I've termed the Nerd Arts."
My easel and two tables I found in an abandoned building. The table on the right holds all of my suplies while the other is a place for me to put my palette. I only use primary colors. Red, Blue, Yellow, and White so I don't much space. My walls have doubled as an everchanging gallery of my work for years now. Actually the pink painting towards the corner was given to me by my girlfriend. The large blue painting with red dots is a biometric portrait of saddam hussein, the orange/pink one towards the ceiling is taken from a LANDSAT aerial photograph, and the yellow/black one in between is a painting taken from an early digital xray of pig lungs.
Here's where I do all my blogging/music. I have a loft where my television and bed are situated. And to the right of my computer are my synths, childrens musical toys, and mixers. I actually just spotted a bottle of Becherovka on the right of my desk. Oops. Should have moved that before the photo. oh well. Behind my scanner you can see my electric guitar which was given to me by my uncle for my 8th birthday. The one framed painting is done by my Grandmother who was Czech. The painting was brought back to the Czech Republic from America years after she died.
Heres a close up of the synth located to the right of my computer in the last photo. It's made by a friend of mine here in Prague. As you can see it's an old telephone which has been outfitted with knobs to control internal oscillators.
Here's what my bed, and pillow look like when they are made. My girlfriend made me the super cool Pacman pillow for my birthday, and I stenciled the area around my bed with a bunch of space invaders.
My palette was made from an old metal tray someone left in my apartment before I moved in. As I stated previously I only use red, yellow, blue, white, and black in all of my paintings. I mix all the colors myself in that little space on the pallete which is slowly getting eaten up by paint.
"well, hoped you enjoyed a peek into my little one room apartment in Prague. If you have any questions, or inquiries please feel free to contact me via either of my websites listed above. Cau:)"
