HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Hasher Al Maktoum inaugurated the vernissage of Simona Jachimecova’ at the Hilton Hotel in Sharjah, last February 28th.
Simona was born and raised in a small town in Slovakia and having lived and worked in various cities all over Europe. Simona`s abstract art represents the spiritual forces and personal experiences that she has had along her journey through life.
In 2011, she moved to Dubai looking for new opportunities and to meet new people. She currently works as a Flight Attendant and her job takes her all over the world immersing her in to different cultures albeit briefly. All these experiences weigh in heavily in her work. Simona`s artwork represent dreams, emotions and lessons learned.
To paint, Simona use her fingers only to give more connection to her work. She prefers vibrant contrasting colours to bring out all the emotions from the painting. It is her hope that her paintings can bring harmony and peace into people’s lives.
In 2014 Simona had participated in the International Art competition, Golden Brush Award produced by Secolo Art Gallery in Dubai. Currently is on the solo exhibition tour around United Arab Emirates which continues to Italy and her home town in Slovakia.
