LUCIA DOVICAKOVA - ARTIST INFO

Lucia Dovicakova (1981, Kosice/Slovakia) is the talented painter of a younger generation, a finalist of Oskar Cepan price, a national price awarding young artists, educated at faculty of fine arts in Kosice. Dovicakova is a brilliant commentator of everyday, often marginal and marginalized problems of women but the banality becomes provoking and ironic in her works. The author works to achieve the look of a naive and a non-academic painting, again with the great amount of humor and individuality. Her work emerges from her life-story and oral history of her family and embraces painting, drawing, video and animation.
