Born in Slovakia, the award-winning artist resides and exhibits in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. Simona Jachimecova has cultivated a strong global reputation and her art is treasured in many public and private collections worldwide.
The combination of intuition and deep connection to the inspiration of creation itself runs like a fine red thread through all her works. Each painting is filled with multiple layers of paint, building a rich history and story into each piece. Simona is influenced by the work of Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning, Van Gogh and Monet.
To paint, Simona solely uses her fingers to enhance her expressionistic approach. She chooses vibrant, contrasting colours to best demonstrate and communicate her emotions and experiences.
Simona has participated in several group exhibitions in Dubai and her art pieces were displayed at the art gallery in Central London. A collection of her artwork was selected to be exhibited across the Head office of Emirates
Airlines in Dubai. In February 2015 she held her own solo exhibition, which was inaugurated by HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Hasher Al Maktoum in Sharjah, U.A.E.
In 2018 her new art pieces were exhibited at the Etihad Modern Art Gallery in Abu Dhabi and her artwork was launched in The Middle East Art Collector Book. In September 2018 she participated at the art exhibition in Singapore and has been announced as one of the finalists for a solo show in the Dacia Gallery in New York. In February 2019 she held her solo exhibition with 42 artwork in Dubai.
Simona was selected participant for the prestigious London Art Biennale 2019, Tokyo Int`l Art Fair 2019, Swiss Art Expo 2019 and for the group exhibition in New York in September 2019. In November last year, Simona was awarded by the Giotto International Art prize in Lisbon. Simona was a represented artist by The Amsterdam Whitney Fine Art Gallery in New York City and her paintings are currently displayed at the Embassy of Slovakia in Abu Dhabi.
" My aspiration is that my paintings bring harmony, resonance and beauty into people's lives."
