"Kristína Chrasteková (born in Bratislava, Slovakia, today based in Prague, Czech Republic) is a visual artist and director working with diverse media, archetypal themes and audiovisual narratives. From the age 14 she became an international model and in 1994 she began a highly successful modelling career, working among others for Prada, Miu Miu, Jean Paul Gaultier and Vogue, while living in New York and Paris. Her eclectic life experiences, swinging between the bucolic and metropolitan, restrained and extravagant, the unpolished and pretentiously sophisticated, between the original and the tamed, between fierceness and fantasia, innocent and cunning, between the natural and the made-up, are the inspiration for her work. Chrasteková uses modernism's aspiration to correct, optimize, rejuvenate and fix the technique to describe the beauty, freshness and humanity. She has developed a unique style surprisingly utilizing high-resolution photographic technology, electrifying soundtrack and loose plot, enabling the spectator to inject his insights into it. The photography is so eloquent, that the images seem sharper than the human eye. Every shot has its distinct theme, composition, esthetic, and rhythm. In her work, Chrasteková encourages the spectator to see beyond the beauty, curb the passion, and suppress the flaming, pay attention."
