West Kootenay artist Frantisek Strouhal has been appointed “Chevalier Academicien” by Mondial Art Academia, France.

Strouhal, a mixed media artist who is internationally admired for his unique body of work titled “Art Embracing Awareness”, was recently approached by Mondial Art Academia to become one of their members.

Mondial Art Academia’s mission is to encourage, spread and promote culture, arts and letters by recognizing and rewarding the exemplary careers of talented artists.

With a creative and aesthetic rigor, it brings together professional artists and amateur talents confirmed in France, Europe, Canada, the USA and other countries.

Strouhal says that it is a great privilege to have been selected by a society of high integrity.

Owner of Mirage Studio, he spends most of his time creating new artwork and doing portraits on commission combining a 19th century technique with 21st century art and craft.
