Martina Krupičková's 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. Martina has always used only a palette knife, not brushes. She likes the versatility of the knife – it can both sharpen focus and smooth to abstract. She 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.
Her paintings draw on personal experiences that are a reflection of the visible – landscapes, cityscapes and transport. Her ambition is to achieve the perfect balance between realism and artistic expression – find that pitch point by testing the limits of her contemporary style.
She holds several awards and also had started to cooperate with the most important Czech auction houses.
1975, Svetla nad Sazavou, Czech Republic.
Martina graduated from a prestigious fashion design school in Brno, Czech Republic, majoring in Textile and Knitwear; this is where she developed her skill of drawing and painting. In 2018, she completed an art course in Seville, Spain under the supervision of artist Jacob Dhein.
After graduating, she spent several months in England and the USA.
