Helena Ticháčková (1998) is a contemporary painter, she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno, where she is also currently pursuing her Master’s degree. In her work, she deals primarily with painting and drawing. She creates fictional environments in which, or through which, she seeks a peaceful place to live – somewhere on the borderline between utopian fantasies and reality. In her bachelor’s thesis, she focused on escapism, depicting portals that allowed for transport to other landscapes, although it was not clear or important exactly where they led. She is currently developing the theme of utopian-realistic landscapes further. She looks for them in the past, underground or above ground, since “now on Earth” is not easily described.
