Martina Krupickova Biography

My style is always evolving

I graduated from a prestigious fashion design school in Brno, Czech Republic, majoring in Textile and Knitwear; this is where I developed my skill of drawing and painting.

After graduating, I spent several months in England and the USA.
My style is always evolving; the strong colour and bold strokes have become slightly softer and more abstract – still playing with light and shadow on a black background. I have always used only a palette knife, not brushes. I like the versatility of the knife - it can both sharpen focus and smooth to abstract. I want the viewer to find new parts to the painting as they adjust their viewpoint, almost like turning the pages of a book. The story starts with only a small amount of background detail, enticing the viewer to delve deeper and discover what lies within.

My paintings draw on personal experiences that are a reflection of the visible - landscapes, cityscapes and transport. My ambition is to achieve the perfect balance between realism and artistic expression - find that pitch point by testing the limits of my contemporary style.
