9781594040283: The Art of Freedom

Growing up in Slovakia in the 1960's, Adam's world is ruled by his country's iron fist. A naturally talented artist, he finds his dreams of attending art school dashed when his family is stripped of their wealth and he is forced into the military. Unbroken, Adam reads restricted books and finds ways to pursue his art, finally coming to the realization that without Freedom, Art cannot thrive. Loosely based on the author's real life, The Art of Freedom offers a glimpse into growing up in a totalitarian regime where creativity is discouraged but not easily killed. It is a story of the undying human spirit, the courage to pursue your dreams, and the power of art to transcend and eventually provide the ultimate freedom.

Milan s life revolves around art and design. He writes regularly about art and architecture, contributing to national magazines and blogs. After moving to Seattle, he founded his firm Heger Architects, designing homes and furniture. His art is represented by Patricia Cameron Gallery. Milan loves to spend his free time in the amazing outdoors of the Pacific North West. He is an avid tennis player and a bike rider.

Review:

I have always been inspired by Milan Heger's creativity both as a fine artist and architect. His paintings and designs have an innate sense of harmony, balance, color and energy. A pure delight in the act of expression. These characteristics of Milan Heger and his work have captured the attention of collectors and myself hand has kept us captivated since his arrival in the USA in 1989. When I read his novel, The Art of Freedom, I was moved to find that Heger brings to his writing those same senses, clearly revealing another aspect of the stream of creativity that flows so readily through him as an artist. Milan Heger brilliantly and with touching humanity portrays how art can be a key to multiple aspects of freedom. --Patricia Cameron, Art Dealer/Curator Patricia Cameron Gallery

Milan Heger's book is simply a journey. A magical journey of an unusually talented artist, who experienced two very different political systems. The reader may identify with the quest for freedom and the search for truth. Pursuit of freedom and the illusion of truth has always attracted artists, but seeking freedom may be like bubbles in a glass of champagne. The book masterfully invites the reader to join the artist on his cultural journey. --Evgeiy Voronin, Magician
