Born in Russia but not Slovak, he inherited hundredths years old, countrywide anti-Semitism with a tragic outcome of his father dying in his hands, mortally wounded by a policeman. His scientific investigation of an origin of living cell communications turned into a conflict with Communistic Dogmas and consequently with the KGB. That and others were sources of his pains and struggles. He wrote, “I had only two choices to roar like a wounded creature or start painting. I selected painting. A canvas was my best friend. It had never complained if my story was too long and if I had to start it over and over again.”
In 1977, he left Russia and accepted a job in the University of Louisville, where supported by NIH grant, built the first super-sensitive processor based on his invention, “neural-cell technology” for detecting a faint signal from the heart. Now, he works in a small high-tech firm where he continues developing new products and inventing new technologies.
Paintings are in some way, chronologically depicting of his life. Paintings are pictured events of a difficult and dangerous life as well as a reflection of a freethinker, charged emotional individual. When free time occurs, he organizes an art-exhibition. Paintings in this book were part of one of his exhibition in Frankfort KY. He published seven books and working on “A Dirty Body can be washed off but not A Dirties Soul.”
