Born in 1949 in the village of Čierny Brod (Galanta district).
After graduating University of Fine Arts in Bratislava in 1973, where he had passed general preparation led by Prof. D. Milly and studies at the department of applied arts and decorative painting in architecture led by Prof. O. Dubay and Doc. J. Matejka, he returned to Kysuce where he still lives and Works.
In his early works he focused on watercolours, drawings and monumental art represented by numerous art-protists which were created especially during the eighties and nineties. Soft lines, natural shapes inspired by nature, indications of landscapes which we can only feel in rich deep tones of saturated colours of red, brown, blue and yellow have become the distinguishing feature of the author’s manuscript. A restrained but at the same time systematic shift in the author’s visual thinking has become most obvious in the technique and topic of watercolour and landscape. Pavol Muška is one of the few Slovak artists who is systematically dealing with this technique and topic. Landscape themes and real records of nature have become the starting point for contemporary abstract, organic looking landscapes and compositions created during the past ten years. The combination of monotypes, drawings and paintings - a connection of coincidence and targeted intervention of the artist (by filling, reducing, colouring) awakens in the mind of an observer an active participation in a creative process.
Besides landscape there is another classis topic of history of arts - a portrait, which is a separate chapter of Paul Muska’s work. Within the author’s concept it provides space for the most courageous artistic and technical experiments.
From the beginning of his work he has been focused on his loved ones, his wife and daughter. Along with cultured realism and traditional technique of oil paintings, which he programmatically deals with in the eighties and nineties, he begins to experiment with photography.
After a period of time he returns to old family photos that acquire new semantic relationships by the author’s multiplication and artistic interventions. There is another way of perception represented by large format black and white psychological portraits, which reflect lives of its protagonists. The strength of their statement and impression of a temporary existence the author maximizes again by a significant artistic gesture. Digitally manipulated photographs, experiments with colour, digital printing combined with painting have become a logical shift. Individual layers of expressive colours cover the photographic portrait, which thus acquires more semantic and aesthetic levels.
The author’s search for continuous processes of transformation, growth, birth and death became the unifying theme of apparently very different positions of artistic expression and it also became the very nature of his work.
The author says about his own work: ".... my work is a spiral, which gradually oscillates and thus also constantly returns to the opposites such as: human - landscape, detail - entirety, sense - feeling, freedom - strictness , polychromatic - monochromatic , reality - abstraction.”
