What made the person, painter and teacher Emil Toman stand out was an uncompromising love of freedom.

It took the fearless young Master of Arts to Cairo, to the desert, where the vibrant abundance of the unknown and the endless emptiness of the sea of sand inspired him and shaped his character too. Inspired by his many trips abroad and stimulated by walks in nature, Emil Toman concentrated on recording powerful emotions and not on depicting what he saw. As a nature lover his biggest wish was to be in touch with the universe. To paint the waves of his sensations as authentically as possible the versatile artist experimented tirelessly with new stylistic methods of expression and found his home as a painter in Art Informel in particular.
