abstract artist

Iveta Ježeková is an abstract painter from Bratislava, Slovakia and has been actively painting since 2016. Her artist name is Ježek Art and Iveta is a self-taught artist. She uses mainly Sponge Painting technique for her work and she also enjoys painting with a palette knife from time to time. Iveta often embellishes her paintings with gold leaves, which add another dimension to the artworks.

In 2019 her first solo exhibition took place at the restaurant Nobile on Hviezdoslav Square.

 

In 2020, her painting "Imperfection Hides Under the Surface" appeared at the Art Spectrum exhibition at Zichy Palace.
In 2022, she was part of the Art x Nature collective exhibition at the Savoy Gallery of the Carlton Hotel, where she painted the artwork "Ignis". During the year 2023 her artworks were exhibited in Twin City, Bratislava, symposium Salve Prachatice, Czech Republic, Premio Citta ´Di Porto Sant ´Elpidio in Italy. In Italy she won a special prize of the international jury Premio speziale Giovanni Emergenti.

 

Since 2020, she has been working in her own Ježek Art studio, where she organises group and individual painting courses. Iveta is one of the few who organise courses focused on abstraction and she is the only one in Slovakia teaching the Sponging technique. Courses are also very popular with beginners.

Under the auspices of Ježek Art, Iveta organised the first-annual Art Hunt Bratislava in 2020. This is a unique project that aims to share art. It is a scavenger hunt focused on paintings from various professional and non-professional artists, which are hidden in the city centre of Bratislava. The project was a resounding success and it is already annual event.

Iveta says that her paintings do not tell stories, but express emotions.

"The magic of abstraction is that the artist inserts something personal into the artwork and thus expresses a specific feeling. But the viewer can see something completely different in it. This brings creativity on both sides and I consider it the biggest advantage of abstract art. "

Iveta expresses that it is not absolutely necessary to look for deep meaning in her works.

"It's not that my artwork is not deep - it is, and very much because it reflects my most intimate feelings. However, I want the viewer to just relax and absorb the feeling that the painting evokes. If someone wants to think more deeply about my paintings, I  highly support it, but it is enough for me if the viewer tells me a simple - I like it. "
