90-Year-Old Czech Grandma Beautifies Her Small Village With Gorgeous Traditional Paintings

Posted on Art 35

We’ve already covered the amazing Polish village where every house is covered with flowers, but now we’ve got you a story that tops even that. Its author is this 90-year-old resident of Louka, Czech Republic, who spends every spring and summer painting the houses of her hometown with delicate blue flower ornaments.

Anežka (Agnes) Kašpárková, a former agricultural worker, was inspired to take on this project by another local woman who had been doing the same for years.

She uses only a single shade of blue and a small brush to create these floral patterns that are inspired by traditional Moravian (southern Czech) artwork. And despite becoming kind of famous locally and nation-wide, she says that she does it only for pleasure: “I am an artist,” she told Czech media. “I just enjoy it and I want to help.”
