Kristína Bukovčáková is a Slovak artist based in Prague. She finished her master's degree in the studio of Czech artist, Jiří David in 2018.
The present world is a mix of ecological, economic and political crises, causing disastrous scenarios for the future, this is the current theme that Kristína depicts using the traditional media of painting. Today's depiction of the world displayed on the painting together with its own experiences create one whole.
The environment is a topical issue for Kristína. She is trying to display it from the perspective of the young person and the generation the subject has the most effect on. Kristína realizes that the ecological collapse is a very general subject but she has been effected on such a personal level that she decided to devote herself to it.
Kristína's paintings are supposed to reflect on the associations that caused by today's conditions of the Earth, the feeling of crisis, concern, confusion, and overpressure of information. Kristína works with what we perceive from the outside. She inflicts this image with the help of social platforms and aims to transform it into a visual plane as the main means of expression. Fragments of nature, loose unidentifiable object, hanging drapery manifest as traces of man or his intervention.
