Portraits from Czech banknotes on medals in luxury sets

Oldřich Kulhánek, renowned and widely recognized Czech artist, focused primarily on graphics and painting. His career started in the sixties of the twentieth century. In 1971 he was arrested and charged with alleged libel and mocking of the communist regime representatives. The pretence for this action were Kulhánek’s graphic art prints from 1968?–1971, which pictured deformed Stalin’s face, perforated pentacles or ugly grinning faces of young builders of communism. Ironically, the communist judges who were judging the artist pocketed all eleven art prints that were originally earmarked for disposal.

The work of Oldřich Kulhánek, the world-renowned graphic artist and painter, is known to the public primarily through the design of the Czech banknotes, of which the master has created eight. In 2010 he established a cooperation with the Czech Mint and the paper money motifs began to appear on commemorative medals. However, the artist did not live to see the completion of whole series of eight medals - he left us in 2013, therefore he only managed to finish just the first four notes with the highest values. They were published in a set of four gold medals in his honor.
