Jarmila Mitríková & Dávid Demjanovič


Jarmila Mitríková (1986) & Dávid Demjanovič (1985)

The Slovak artist duo Jarmila Mitríková (1986) & Dávid Demjanovič (1985) works with the traditional technique of pyrography, burning motives into plywood and painting them with wood stains. They use this technique as a reference to folk amateur art: the technique of pyrography was popular among people during socialism in former Czechoslovakia. They also create glazed or polychromed figurative ceramic sculptures. In their hybrid style Christian traditions, folklorism, pagan rituals, superstitions, myths, local legends with links to WWII and socialistic history are linked together. Their works are kept in private collections, as well as in collections of the Slovak National Gallery and other public museums.
They live and work in Prague and Košice.
