Dietrich Moravec was born in 1950 in Bavaria, Germany. In the early 1970's he began studying and teaching himself painting and drawing. Dietrich is very interested in the old masters techniques and he experimented a lot, using techniques like egg tempera and oil painting in combination, as well as working with printmaking, especially with etchings, but also alternative printmaking with intaglio-type. Today Dietrich rather use acrylics and oil.
His main subjects are still lives, landscapes and some animal paintings. His artistic interest really belongs to realism and photo-realism. Until 2015 he used to earn his living as a teacher in arts and IT, now that he has retired with even more time to spend on painting.
