This year’s March brought the new rays of the spring sun to the Office Gallery in Accace Slovakia as well as a new cheerful, colourful exhibition of paintings by Veronika Fodorová named “Art in Children’s Drawing”. The original works of art were created by combining children’s drawings and creating them with artistic and graphic techniques.
However, the author, who studied fine art at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava, does not only work with the original children’s “scribbles”, but preserves the original line of drawing to keep their essence, because as she says she does not want her works to lose their credibility: “Because of the authenticity, I consider the children’s drawing to be the purest form of art. I try to present their view with an adult’s eye. Such a picture becomes a lifelong memory of childhood in its most sincere form”. The initial inspirations of Fodorová were her own children, two sons and one daughter, whose drawings about animals were also enriching our premises until April 13, 2019.
Since 2008, the Slovak artist has created more than 200 works in collaboration with many children. Besides art she also devotes herself to visual communication and product selection for the unique concept of selective toy shop Vnímavé hračky – Toyeto.
