About author


Viliam Hirner was born on 23rd August 1962 in Smolenice. He studied at the Secondary Agricultural and Technical School in Modra. Already during his studies, he took part in various painting competitions where his works reaped first rewards. After the age of 35, he started to fully develop his talent. His artistic creations may be found in Slovak and foreign private collections.  

At present, he lives and produces works of art in Horné Orešany, a village in the Western Slovakia. This wine-producing region situated at the foothills of Malé Karpaty (the Small Carpathians) provides him with lots of inspirations. Most of the time, these inspirations include nature landscapes depicting various seasons of the year, meadows, forests, picturesque secluded places, vineyards, peasants´ houses or places reminding him of his childhood. His work features a variety of still life paintings with a special attention to bouquets.
