About Gabriela Holcer

Gabriela Holcer has never been far from art, it accompanied her since her childhood through her father a well-known Slovak artist, later through school or through dance, which she was addicted to for many years. But there was a moment when she decided to devote herself only to fine art, which fulfilled her even more.

At the moment, if she does not travel anywhere in the world for inspiration or relaxation, she lives and works in Slovakia, where she focuses on drawing, painting and graphic design, which she studied.

At the same time, however, she succumbed to a more specific kind of art, namely silk painting, where she depicts both classic and nonstandard motifs of women – through which she connects different cultures and at the same time sends a message to all women, communicating how endless is their beauty regardless of their origin. How different yet at the same time how very similar we are. You can see it on one of her scarves „OPPOSITE BUT THE SAME“, where she brought together a woman from Tibet and a woman from South America. More at my website specifically about painting on silk: artbubblesilk.com

She specializes in acrylic painting and her favorite motifs are people and animals she loves. In portraits, which are mainly made to order (on commission), she likes to capture the personality and soul, whether she is portraying cats, dogs or humans. Her portraits make unique and unforgettable gifts that the giftee or owner will always value dearly.
Recently, she has devoted herself to painting nudes, often a woman immersed in water – like a mermaid. She is fascinated by the depth, transparency, lightness and color, but at the same time the infinity and the power of water, which glides along the curves of the female body, beautifully highlighting and absorbing / obscuring them at the same time. Through these images, Gabriela communicates a message to all women to respect themselves, to feel beautiful in their skin without conforming to trends, values and tastes of someone else.

In each of her paintings you will find a bit of herself, her inner world, her feelings, which she then perpetuates with great passion and love. What she does, she adores and hopes you will like her style

Education

Technical University Kosice, Slovakia - M.A. Visual communication

I was brought up with art, my father being an artist too, therefore I was always not far from some form of art - painting, drawing or to mix it up, dancing.

I started painting actively after university - when I replaced graphic design and drawings with brushes and acrylic. The time has come to add more color to my life :).
