The Story Behind The Ars Poetica 2018 Key Visual

The Story Behind The Ars Poetica 2018 Key Visual

Meet Dorota Sadovská, the artist behind the Ars Poetica 2018 visuals. The concept of the poster is taken directly out of her exhibition titled "Yellow Embrace," where she depicts naked saints from above. She paints realistic depictions of human form but from an unusual perspective and with a twist – the body is colored and submerged in its surroundings, one seeping into another. On one hand, she is a traditional artist with a classical, realistic style; on the other though, she often veers into other kinds of media, erasing the lines behind her.
