Comics have come a long way since they were introduced in the late 19th century. Over the decades, graphic novels became more sophisticated, pushing and redefining artistic and narrative boundaries. Years ago, Petr Litoš - a CU graduate – co-founded comic book publisher CREW which is a powerhouse on the Czech market today.

He has illustrated magazines and books but recently took on his biggest project: a large mural on the wall of a four-story apartment building at Hradčanská in Prague 6. He is Marek Kulhavý, known in the art world as Mára Čmára (Mára Scribbles). Kulhavý found his way to art at Charles University’s Catholic Theological Faculty.
