from bratislava to berlin
Born in a small town in Slovakia, Martina Paukova started out studying politics in Bratislava. Attracted to all things pictorial she moved to London to study Graphic Design and later Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts. Currently she works as a freelance illustrator from Berlin.
Loyal to the dark outline and flat fill from the beginning of her career she’s found an innovative and fresh style that’s contemporary and feminine.
Her work consists of daily mundane scenes and lanky characters, often with perplexed expressions and dated hairdos, sitting behind computers or sipping coffee. Martina’s work has rocketed in popularity in the last couple of years, seeing her create humorous, jam-packed images in a trademark palette and Memphis-inspired patterns for an increasingly impressive list of clients
