On 19 April 2018 the talented artist Martina Krupičková opened an exhibition of her pictures in the newly-modernised showroom of the first Czech multi-brand retailer of luxury bed brands, Luxury Sleeping, in Vinohrady.
The invited guests could admire and try out not only hand-made Kuperus and Pullman Dutch beds, or Treca Interiors Paris products, but they could also lie on a bed from the Trump Home Edition limited collection.
The whole showroom was tastefully decorated with pictures by Martina Krupičková, from Ledeč nad Sázavou, who in recent years has collected one prestigious award after another. This year her picture “Tram Number 2” won first place in the global City Scapes Art Competition 2018. Since last year Martina has been working with several prestigious auction houses.
Martina studied at the Secondary School of Applied Arts for Textiles in Brno. After finishing school Martina went to Great Britain and the USA for several months. After returning, in 1999 she did her first oil painting and in 2003 she held her first independent exhibition. Her pictures are characterised by strong colours and strong spatula strokes without a brush on a black background. She is fascinated by light and the perspective of the ordinary world. In her work she tries to find a balance between light and shade, in order to achieve the necessary depth of the subject and subsequently put it in motion.
She draws ideas from specific personal experiences that are reflections on what was seen—landscapes, cities and means of transport. She has had several successful domestic exhibitions. Her pictures hang in the private collections of, for example, Czech, British, Swedish, Belgian, French, Slovak and also US art collectors.
“We're proud that from today Martina Krupičková’s work will decorate our multi-brand Luxury Sleeping showroom,” said Ivana Guthová, the shop’s owner. Guests admired the luxury beds and pictures to the accompaniment of a string duo, The Swans, whose unique take on well-known compositions pleasantly enhanced the uniqueness of the works exhibited.
