Tereza Hurlow / Buskova

Current Employment Self-employed artist/Educator

Since completing my MA in Fine Art Printmaking at the Royal College of Art in 2007, my work has been widely exhibited in the UK and abroad, receiving several awards and prizes. After graduating, I attained exhibitions and support from both David Roberts (Rituals, 2008) and Anita Zabludowicz (A Tradition I Do Not Mean To Break, 2009). In addition I have been awarded Individual Artist funding from Arts Council England on four occasions: 2009 (Spring Equinox), 2010 (Masopust), 2016 (Clipping The Church) and also for my latest community art project, Hidden Mothers.

In these unsettling times my unifying artistic practice will help students to find ways to engage with different communities and interdisciplinary practices to an international standard. As an artist, I celebrate and reinterpret long established customs with performance, print and video. My practice deals with craft, tradition and rituals, which I reinvent with collaborators and local communities. Slavic rituals are often the starting point. As a UK-based Czech artist and a mother, I also explore other cultures’ customs and universal ideas of motherhood and community.

Since 2017 I have set up a successful after-school art club at Chad Vale Primary School, where I have been appointed an artist in residence. During school holidays I run pop-up kids’ art workshops in my local area and I also teach 1:1 art classes. I have advanced skills rooted in my studies at the Royal College of Art, multiple Arts Council England Grant Awarded projects, and exhibitions with major galleries. I have Enhanced DBS and public liability insurance.
