About the artist
Michaela Ďurišová is a fine art photographer, and a designer of floral accessories and decorations. In her spare time, she enjoys watercolour painting and singing, but her heart is drawn more and more to fine art photography. She is enchanted by art itself.
Michaela has a degree in music and drama, but she was already interested in fine arts and scenography during her studies. In 2009, she founded the floral handmade accessories brand called Magaela, which is now worn by people all over the world. She started in the world of photography mainly to showcase her handmade accessories, but over time she fell in love with fine art photography. Her work mirrors certain images of her life, which she inserts as fragments from different periods. In her work you will find inspiration in antiquity, Greek, Renaissance, Art Nouveau, and Raffaelists. She is also fascinated by the artists, philosophers, poets, writers and composers themselves, often finding inspiration in Greek mythology.
When creating new designs of accessories and taking photos, she likes to improvise and prepares only main concepts, thus considering her own work as an aestheticization of her own feelings and life.
Michaela Ďurišová tries to break stereotypes about female beauty and beauty as such. She likes to aestheticize fantasy themes. Her favorite model and muse is her mother. Red-haired girls often dominate her photos. When taking photos, she likes to play with light. She is inspired by old painters. She often uses floral elements, which are closely related to her long-term work in her personal handmade brand of floral accessories.
