Simona is a predominantly self-taught artist. Born and raised in Slovakia and currently based in Dubai, where she has been living for nearly 8 years now.
The combination of intuition and deep connection to the inspiration of creation itself runs like a fine red thread through all her works. Each painting is filled with multiple layers of paint, building a rich history and story into each piece. Simona is influenced by the work of Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning, Van Gogh and Monet.
To paint, she solely uses her fingers in order to provide her an intimate connection to her work. She chooses vibrant, contrasting colours in order to best demonstrate and communicate her emotions and experiences. Simona's aspiration is that her paintings bring harmony, resonance and beauty into people's lives.
Simona has participated in several group exhibitions in Dubai and her art pieces were displayed at the art gallery in Central London.
A collection of her artwork was selected to be exhibited across the Head office of Emirates Airlines in Dubai. In February 2015 she held her own solo exhibition called Serendipity which was inaugurated by HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Hasher Al Maktoum in Sharjah, U.A.E.
In 2018 her new art pieces were exhibited at the Etihad Modern Art Gallery in Abu Dhabi and her artwork was launched in The Art Collector Book. On September 2018 she participated at the art exhibition in Singapore and has been announced as one of the finalists for a solo exhibition in the Dacia Gallery in New York. Simona is selected participant for the London Art Biennale 2019 in May, Tokyo Int`l Art Fair 2019 in June and Swiss Art Expo 2019 in August 2019.
