"I make art because I have to, without any compromises. My work is a fight for better than yesterday and more new for tomorrow. The ideas are everywhere. Pass them through my mind's imagination and the Art is already produced. Simple, understandable Art for people with enough intellectual capacity. It's to provoke emotion, to cast light into obscure regions using color, form, symbol and image. As soon as I stop, it is only to start again. I can never add THE END..." -Ladislav R. Hanka.
