Chalánková in Mahen Library and Slovakia

Vendula Chalánková can be spotted twice at the moment and each time in different style. Jiří Mahen’s Library in Brno opened Zlatá stuha 2009 (Golden Ribbon 2009) exhibition of books nominated for this award. If you might not know where to look for Vendula’s work, it’s under the „WINNER“ tag. Her Little Red Ridinghood succeeded among quality competition of illustrators Galina Miklínová (Mr. If-I Is Looking for a Friend), Daisy Mrázková (Songs of Ant Nanny) and Jiří Dvořák (Minimax and the Ant). The exhibition is due to 9th October.

MultivitamínBesides children production, Chalánková has a deviant side too – the Deviant Taste brand (Zvrhlý vkus) under which she supplies social science and arts faculty students with earrings and other jewels with added conceptual-artistic value. According to Marianne, 33% women shop on the Internet. If you fall within the rest that don’t like it anymore and you prefer trying the stuff on first before you buy it, you should make a trip to Bratislava on 8th October. There will be event called Multivitamín in Petržalka’s Club behind the Mirror (Klub za zrkadlom), which combines film premiere, concerts and party with design market. Adding to Slovak handmade designs, you can find Vendula’s Deviant Taste there too. It is a charity event as organizer Dea Kolenčíková points out: „multi-genre benefit event that will enhance your system with high dose of culture. Its theme is visual art vs. music thrashing. The program starts at 3pm with design market, where Slovak and Czech designers and handmade producers are presented. DJ Stroon will make a pleasant atmosphere while you can shop for design T-shirts, jewellery, books or new "Animation nie je mŕtva/ Animácia is not dead" DVD. You can watch it too at 6pm screening presented by Fest Anča. Concerts by The Autumnist and Future Sound of Petržalka will follow while Marius Konvoj (CZE) launches a wild afterparty. The cream will be 3D glasses and 3D print T-shirts, which you get at entry and which make this party a really special visual experience. The finance benefit from this event will be divided between Sympathy And Support NPO for animals in need and a new local design shop.“

If you still cannot locate Vendula Chalánková, you can do so on Artlist, where she has been finally added recently.
