Hi!

My name is Kristyna. I’m a Sydney-based artist and this is a little bit about me and my art.

I’m an entirely self-taught artist. I grew up in a small mining town in the Czech Republic, just near the border of Poland. It’s a pretty depressing and drab city with repetitive grey buildings. And so, since I was young, I always painted colourful pieces to “escape” the dreariness of the city. My mum saw that I had some talent and encouraged me to continue by signing me up to junior art school. I kept that painting recreationally as a teenager, but I never thought that I could ever pursue it as a professional artist. When I moved to Australia in 2013, I began painting almost non-stop.

The Australian flora, fauna and landscape is so incredibly inspiring, and I began to pour out this inspiration onto canvases. It’s like Australia awoke the part of me that used to paint when I was a child in the Czech Republic. As a result I began to do more commissioned work for people in my life, and from there it’s just grown organically. It was only after I sold a few pieces that I started to pursue it more professionally. I’ve had the opportunity now to display at several art shows (Camberwell, Box Hill, Albert Park, Brunswick).

My most used and favourite media is acrylic on canvas. I just love the textures and visceral nature of the paint, and I find it’s very effective to get my feelings out onto the canvas. A few years ago I started experimenting with alcohol ink in combination with resin and acrylic, and I’ve completed quite a few paintings combining those onto various surfaces, like yupo paper and wooden panels. I’m never satisfied with just one technique so I’m always looking for new things to try!

My style is likely described as abstract, when I'm painting an abstract piece, I find myself diving deep into the colours and textures without any regard to what I’m ‘meant’ to do. There is no right and no wrong; it’s freedom and I just follow my hand and what it does next. I don’t overthink it and just enjoy the ride, but I hesitate to define myself only as an abstract artist since I love to paint anything that inspires me. I also love to try new styles and techniques, so I really find painting pop art so enjoyable. Pop art pieces usually take me back to when I was a child, being playful and careless. In case you can’t tell, art is very therapeutic for me.

I love to express myself and speak to people through my art. I try to evoke emotions and make them feel as I feel, when I create the artwork. Creating art is an expression of my thoughts, emotions and desires. It’s about sharing the way I experience the world.

I began to do more commissioned work for people in my life, and from there it’s just grown organically. It was only after I sold a few pieces that I started to pursue it more professionally. I’ve had the opportunity now to display at several art shows such as:

2018
White horse art show, The Box Hill Town Hall
2018
Albert Park College art show, College's Bay Street Campus
2018
Camberwell art show, Swinburne University Advanced Technologies Centre
