Ladislav Hanka was born in 1952 to parents who emigrated to the US from Stalinist Czechoslovakia. In his own words:

I have academic credentials, but I backed away from that world long ago: There is an MS in zoology; MFA in printmaking and some years of study in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. I apprenticed with an engraver of stamps and currency in Prague and might have been a counterfeiter, but for the dreariness of spending one’s days making money.

He is a printmaker, draftsman and bookmaker who portrays the natural world with intimate knowledge and rare authority.
