Štepánka Šimlová

Born in 1966

Štěpánka Šimlová presents her artistic talent (as well as her artistic thought) primarily in the form of new media, photographic series and their digital manipulation; however, she does not reject the medium of painting either. She often challenges market and fashion icons, slogans and commercials which force their world-view upon the society. By means of digital manipulation, she attributes their messages and products with certain existential perspectives, making them into subjective and personal accounts. In this way she reacts to the consumerist issues of the world, transcending to the spiritual world.
