Adéla Jánská

Adéla Janská is a Czech painter and one of the artists who emerged on the Czech art scene without having been trained in conventional art centres. Born in Olomouc, the artist studied in Slovakia (Bánská Bystrica) before returning back home to Olomouc. She graduated from the art college in 2009, but exhibited for the first time in 2013. She is currently leading young artists at Secondary School of Design and Fashion in Prostějov. A figurative painter with a sense of colour who manages to update the traditional format of the painting and infuse it with the atmosphere of the present, an ambivalent feeling. With her convincing works, Janská thus naturally fits into the contemporary tendencies of figurative painting and enriches its Central European reference register and expressive potential.
