Bety Krňanská

The one that touches upon the threads of a story told by tradition and whisper.

Bety Krnanska (b. 1992) is an artist based in Prague. She is a graduate of the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague (MFA). Working with painting and installation, she brings together contemporary and traditional materials, experimenting with old crafting techniques and using them within new contexts. Her work conceptually explores the interconnections between environmental issues and contemporary gender challenges. Her personal vision is shaped through the lens of maternity and feminine sensitivity and is informed by her experience as a young mother and artist. In 2019 she was a finalist of the Czech Art Critique Prize for Young Painters. In 2021 the group exhibition Wom*n-Rose-Bone-Song she participated in, curated by Hana Janeckova, was featured in the issue 68 of Spike Magazine. Her work has been exhibited at home and abroad, including the exhibition ,,A Scattering of Salts'' American Institute of Greece, 2023, Effimisms at MISC Gallery Athens/GR, The WORLDS (Drawing Triennale in Wroclaw, Poland) curated by Honza Zamojski and the SWAP Barcelona Art-Fair in 2021.
