Martina Krupičková at work.
September 15, 1975
Martina Krupičková was born in the Czech town of Světlá nad Sázavou, which is approximately 100 km from Prague, Czech Republic.
In 1990, Krupičková commenced Fashion Design and Textile studies at a school in Brno. After graduating, Krupičková traveled extensively, including several months in England and the USA. In 1999, Krupičková returned to Prague and started to paint oil on a black canvas using a palette knife.
Her work is regularly featured in Czech Auction Houses "European Arts", "Galerie Kodl", "Prague Auctions" and others.
In 2018, Krupičková was chosen as a contestant for the UK Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year television programme (Season 4 Heat 5). A group of selected artists were asked to paint Inveraray Castle on the shore of Loch Fyne in Scotland. The artists have to create their artwork within four hours (interrupted by interviews, camera setups and breaks) and three judges choose the winner.
