Ira Svobodová is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. Inspired by avant-garde architecture, constructivism, and the principles of geometry, her modernist compositions consist of pure colour tones achieved through a laborious technique of layering special acrylic gels. She has already made her mark in both national and international art fairs (her work will be shown at VOLTA NY in March 2015) and exhibitions, showing her work alongside celebrated artists such as Richard Prince, Mary Heilman and Ryan McGinley. Her works are included in many private collections.

One Final Note: There are no guarantees when it comes to buying art and you should always feel happy with what you’re buying as it may be on your walls for a pleasurably long time. But if you are interested in the investment side of buying art then acquiring works by emerging artists is a great way to begin. We hope you enjoy our selection.
