TECHO ART COLLECTION 2023 and Jiří Černický

With Advent approaching, our Techo Art Collection will receive its twenty-eighth addition with a limited-edition print, complemented by a T-shirt with an original art print. These have been created by artist Jiří Černický.

The art T-shirts were originally created as an idea to complement the Techo Art print collection, so that an original work of art by the same artist could be available to a wider group of admirers.

The first print was created in 1996 by Karel Chaba using the technique of coloured drypoint. He launched the tradition of the limited-edition Techo Art Collection, which later included T-shirts with original art prints. Over more than a quarter of a century, the collection has featured numerous distinguished artists including Oldřich Kulhánek, Michael Rittstein, Jiří Načeradský, Theodor Pištěk, Jiří Sopko, Jiří Georg Dokoupil, Krištof Kintera and many others.

We have always tried to connect our activities with the world of art as it provides us valuable inspiration and further energy for our work. The traditional Techo Art Collection is a good example of this. It highlights beauty, precision, perseverance, but also respect for the cooperation between art and craftsmanship.

If you are one of our partners and customers, you can look forward to an original T-shirt or print, just like every year.

Jiří Černický
This year's Techo Art Collection artist

“Many people might consider it a cliché, but life itself is my muse, the very essence of it. There's hardly anything that doesn't spark my creativity. It's true. That's why my art is so eclectic and multifaceted.”

Take a look at the whole collection.
