Kasparkova paints traditional Moravian flower motifs all across her neighbourhood. The bright blue patterns bring an element of artistic beauty and charm to the area’s buildings, with the nonagenarian’s favourite walls to paint being those of the local chapel. She touches up her work on the church annually, paintbrush in hand as she stands on the scaffolding.
Kasparkova does not plan her projects in advance, but instead lets the brush flow and create whatever floral patterns inspire her in the moment. This practice of using buildings as a canvas is not new to her village, in fact the tradition was passed on to Kasparkova from other local women.
Although Kasparkova does not paint in the winter due to the cold, as the spring sun starts to peep through the clouds, she starts her project again, continuing on through summer and autumn.
An inspiration to the creative inside all of us, Kasparkova is a true artist and possibly the best neighbour ever.
