Nikol Haskova

A fascination with the world of art began at an early age for Nikol. Born in the former Czechoslovakia, she remembers sketching, painting, poetry and acting being her interests from childhood.

Nikol began her full time artistic career in 2006. She was then deeply moved by urban sprawl occurring at a rapid pace in the Vancouver area. Aiming to visually document the dramatic changes in her community, Haskova became interested in not only the morphing natural scenery, but also its habitants. A particular fondness for crows started after the artist observed not only their intelligence, but determination and adaptability in adverse conditions as well. Nikol has photographed, interacted with and painted countless crows and other birds, at times assigning them human traits, finding a satisfying metaphor between the two.

Currently, Haskova is exploring infusing street art into her hyper-realistic portraits of birds. She is enjoying the contrast between the looseness and boldness of graffiti and the detail and fineness of nature. Mixed media is also a big part of her work. Nikol often has to invent her own techniques to incorporate new material into her acrylic based works.

Born in Czechoslovakia in 1972. Nationality is Canadian.
