Bio

I am London based British emerging artist, born at that time used to be Czechoslovakia, now it is in-dependent Slovak Republic. From childhood I was very curious about things and had lots of imagina-tion to make new things. This curiosity grown into interest to study marketing and advertising and learn graphic design. At 23, I had my own advertising agency in Slovakia, where I gained lots of life skills and experiences, which I often using in my current work and collections. In 2005 I decided to move to London and embrace my creativity and artistic path. To pursue my dream, I enrol to The Open University to study Design Innovation combined with Art history. Through studies I gain pro-found knowledge of the classical and traditional art and design principles, which reflects in my work. Also, this helped me to transitioned and explore traditional artistic techniques, medium and some-times combine them with the digital art to create new unique pieces. I also, I had lots of inspiration from the surroundings, nature, music, or random objects, which I quite often find remarkably interest-ing. In 2017, I decided to show my artwork publicly through local art fairs and festivals, which I continue to do so.
I took part of few virtual exhibitions curated by Capital Culture House Contemporary gallery based in Madrid; exhibition `HOPE` March 2022 and `EPIPHANY` December 2021. HELVETART virtual gallery Switzerland July 2021 and March/ April 2022 and The Holy ART gallery London virtual exhibition `RE-FLECTIONS`. Since December 2021, I had been part of the Creaciόn Exhibition Season 3 and Season 4 curated by Shreyasee Konar from India, which took place on variety social media and outlets within Asia continent.
Also, I cooperate with TRiCERA gallery in JAPAN, which is international gallery allowing artist from around the world to permanently display and sale the artwork. Along those, I was able to cooperate with Boomer Gallery on physical exhibition `ART FOR REAL` in April 2022. In my latest collection called `Totally Crazy Abstract` I explored different techniques, how to work with paper as medium, implementing diverse types of paints and mix all mediums together, to create sense of movement, emotions, gratitude, and the happiness, which we can feel and to give others. This collection is celebration of life, happiness, laugh and all the positivity in the world, which is stronger than the heart dark-ness.
