The Fine Little Day Art Award is an independent award for contemporary art, open to all kinds of visual, creative artists. Genre, background and career experience is irrelevant, only the work is taken into consideration. The award is granted without application. Every year the Fine Little Day jury will pick and award 2500 EUR to an artist from around the world. The award’s aim is to highlight and encourage the chosen artist.
Since Fine Little Day’s establishment in 2007, its platform has passionately spread the word about artists and their work across the globe to showcase their work through social media, products, publications and exhibitions.
Johanna Grigarová is a free spirit with her own distinctive and authentic aesthetics. Johanna is a fashion textile designer, with a Bachelor degree from Textile design (2017) and a Master from Fashion design (2019) at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia. Besides that she also has a bachelor degree in social work. Grigarová’s work embellishes and enhances textiles in a very immediate, sensual fashion. The skillfully made creations and visually surrounding contexts are often wild and involve elements of narratives, with almost mystical qualities. We praise Grigarová’s work and have appointed her to be the first one to receive the Fine Little Day Art Award.
The jury: Elisabeth Dunker, co-founder and creative director.
Ulrika E. Engberg, co-founder and CEO.
Ushyté is a way for me to join minimal shape, wearability and print all into one design. A design that is light, universal and with a touch of femininity, combined with details that give the clothing distinctive characteristic. It is everything that I love to wear and everything that makes me feel unique. Ushyté is my world and you are a part of it as well.
