Marketa Kemp is a Melbourne based artist, born in Prague (Czech Republic), now living permanently in Melbourne. Although having received no extensive or formal training, she has studied with and learned from various artist in Australia and overseas, including The Aegean Center for the Fine Arts in Greece and an Australian artist Wayne Viney who introduced her to printmaking in 2017. Printmaking, monotypes in particular, has quickly become Marketa’s passion. She is drawn to the unique quality of the mono (one off) print and the level of unpredictability the process presents.
Over the past twelve months Marketa has been a finalist in several art awards including the inaugural Megalo International Print Prize in Canberra and has had her work shown as part of group exhibitions in galleries around Melbourne.
Marketa finds inspiration in landscapes that have left a deep impression in her, places rich in atmosphere, hidden life and mystery.
