„Heima er ekki þaðan sem þú ert, heldur þar sem þú finnur ljós þegar myrkvar“
Upphaf tékkneska þjóðsöngsins er spurningin hvar er heimili mitt. Svo ég reyndi að finna fólk sem yfirgaf landið sitt til að finna nýtt heimili hér á Íslandi. Flestir listamenn sem hér búa finna endalausan innblástur í íslensku landslagi og einstakri náttúru sem er svo ólík mið-Evrópulandinu Tékklandi.

“Home isn’t where you’re from, it’s where you find light when all grows dark.”
Beginning of the czech national anthem is the question where is my home. So I tried to find people who left their country to find their new home here in Iceland. Most of the artist living here find their endless inspiration in the icelandic landscape and unique nature, so different to the middle european country.
is a Czech artist based in Reykjavik. She is a member of International Association of Art.
She exhibited in Czech Republic, Austria and Iceland.
She studied ceramics at Art Crafts School in Brno and started her professional career 2001 as a ceramist creating mostly abstract amorphous pieces. 2006 she exhibited her art work together with paintings reflecting object’s message. This was a break in her career and she started to use all kinds of media. She also combine different art fields cooperating with other visual artists, dancers, writers or musicians.
She works thematically reacting on topics coming to her life or to the space which she creates for.
She calls herself a visual storyteller as her focus is to witness the essence of what she perceives showing a new point of view.
Ivana Goláňová was impressed by the richness of the Icelandic language and its endless expressions for a single meaning. Her passion for different languages, their similarities or contrasts in grammar and vocabulary and her love for traveling led her to this project. She has always enjoyed writing as her avocation, though her professional specialization is Psychology. See more on www.deXpre.art.
She is illustrator and tattoo artist in the south of the Iceland.
I came to Iceland and absolutely felt for its nature and peace. My first travel to Iceland was in June 2015, and like almost all travellers, even I was driving around the island by car to explore the country’s best-known places. Eventually, I visited also Thórsmörk in July 2017. I didn’t understand why is this place so powerful for me. I didn’t know that till the moment when I hiked the Valahnúkur mountain. That was breathtaking and I started crying for no reason. That place and the view all around the glaciers and valleys was so strong. I come from the Czech Republic which is a completely different type of nature and everything smaller than here in Iceland. Iceland has given respect to nature. Iceland has become my biggest love and my second home.
I´ve lived in Iceland since May 2018.
Formaly education she had in ceramics however now she is focused more on drawings and paintings.
She graduated on Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno in Czech Republic. She consider herself as a multimedia artist, but the main field of her work is drawing and video, as same as cooperation with other artists. She is also member of one forest ambient and two noise bands.
“The main theme I am usually exploring in my art is relationships between human and nature, environment or space we live in and spirituality. Through spirituality we can see more in nature and through nature we can find more spirituality around. I am still trying to explore the mycelium connecting us with others and the coincidences of life. „
She works with different media (painting, drawing, photography, video). She is taking the inspiration from landscapes, everyday life and moments which surrounds her.

She is an illustrator .
Secondary school of Applied Art and Design, Uherské hradiště
Illustration of non exist creatures that you probably cannot meet in the zoo or anywhere else….perhaps in an Icelandic landscape, their home.
Although I enjoyed painting and drawing as a child, I chose to study music. I graduated with a degree in opera singing from the conservatory and continued at the Faculty of Arts. While studying at the university, I had the opportunity to travel and I fell in love with it so much that I decided to quit my studies. Not only did I gain freedom, but after years, I finally got to do what I wanted to do from an early age: draw. Since then, I have been devoting myself to freelance illustration. Traveling inspires me and my work as well as broadens my experience.
I’m creating prints, postcards, and children’s illustrations. I also like to take photos and use some of them to create scenes.
