Jana Bednárová, a professional artist from Slovakia, who has been working on her art research of wild nature in North East India for the past decade will be presenting her art experience via short video at the Hipfest – Hornbill International photo fest/ contest and art gallery to be inaugurated on 1st Day of Hornbill Festival. She will also take part in the art talk on the 2nd day of Hornbill Festival at the Local Colors Art Exhibition, the Art Corner hosted by TaFMA Nagaland.

Bednárová moved to North East after finishing her master degree in fine arts in 2014. She visited Nagaland for the first time in 2023 to learn more about the pristine nature of Dzükou Valley where she went to paint outdoors using her specific art technique, handmade pigments on Eri silk. Through the outdoor paintings, Jana attempts to capture the atmosphere of wild nature and preserve those images of harmony, mutuality and co-existence that are disappearing from human eyes.

The Slovakian artist has been working in Meghalaya in various projects including an art residency program named as ‘Artists’ Point’ and an ecological project coined as ‘Pine Home’ with ‘Picasso Pupils an Art Society’ since 2016. She is a founder member of this Shillong and Slovakia based international art organization, which focuses on cultural exchange of resource professionals.

The results of her project in Nagaland will be showcased in art exhibitions in Europe.
