Marek Ormandik likes to paint with a wide brush stroke. It is obvious to everyone who knows his work and therefore it does not have to be examined in more detail. But, and that’s a good question, why is he always painting in a wide brush stroke? Is it just a pose to guarantee that his painting is sufficiently original or is there something else in the matter? It is certainly not a pose, so we definitely need a wider interpretation.
During his years of artistic production, he exhibited at separate and joint exhibitions in about twenty countries. Let’s not only mention Slovakia and the neighboring Czech Republic but also Austria, Hungary and Germany, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Turkey, as well as Russia, Japan or the USA. In 1998, the film Sklenné obrazy (Glass Images) was shot about his work, and two poetry collections of Shooting Prayers (1995) and Moon on Red (2006) were published in Bratislava.

In 2005 – 2011 he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava, at the Department of Painting and Other Media, in the IV. atelier of Professor Ivan Csudai.

Zoya Gallery and Zoya Museum has in recent years expanded its collection by works of contemporary Slovak and foreign authors, and its collection includes art works such as paintings, sculptures and drawings.
The Slovak modern art is characterized by the interpretation of the folklore genre as well as the socio-critical aspects in the works of artists of various generations and artistic opinions.
Zoya Gallery owns one of Andy Warhol’s largest collections not only in Slovakia, but also in Europe, which includes a portfolio of serigraphs and canvas works. The first work of this popart artist came into his portfolio in 2004 (Hammer and Sickle 17/50, II.162), and since then this collection has been gradually expanding and now reaches over one hundred works – screen printings, drawings and canvas paintings.
