Denisa Hřičiščová graduated in the Studio Kurt Gebauer at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. She participated in several internships - at the Academy of FineArts in Prague and Athens School of Fine Art in Greece. Denisa focuses on sculpture; her interpretation offers very precise and harmonious work.
Q: What was the ultimate breakthrough moment in your career?
A: The ultimate breakthrough moment in my career was every time I managed to work on an idea hard enough to see it through.
Q: Why do you think people should collect contemporary art, namely yours?
A: Because they should enjoy themselves not only in the gallery but also at home, in their private place. I have a bronze statue of The Wounded by Štursa and whenever I look at it, I am moved to tears.
Q: If you had an opportunity to talk to a deceased artist, who would it be and what would you ask him/her?
A: There are probably several people I’d like to talk to but right now, this is what I’d like to ask Jean-Antoine Houdon: How did you manage to create such perfect portraits? Because I don’t get it… could you please give me some substantial tips?
