I claimed that Tichý was a bona fide outsider artist, one that might not be fully aware of what he is doing artistry- Brian disagreed.

According to Tichý, the writer Veselsky was a “nutter” as were the artists Petr Cmelik and, even, Tjepkema.
Tichý was by no means a loner and many people from Kyjov have spoken with him over the years.
Although Tichý is often presented as not only an outsider but also as a loner or hermit, Tichý spoke with many people on a daily basis.
