Radka Salcmannova

is a multimedia artist, designer, and film maker

She has been remarked for her daredevil approach on

pushing the boundaries of contemporary visual design.

Born in 1986 in Prague, where she graduated from the Academy

of Art Architecture and Design. In 2012 she moved to New York for

a stint at School of Visual Arts and in 2016 she set up there her own studio,

RS Visual Thing, focused on art, cinematography, fashion and

experimental installations.

In 2016 she received prestigious FCA grant which

is given only once a year to the best artist  no more than five. 

"Mixing different media allows me to transgress

categories that traditionally define a work of art ."

Storytelling is undeniably my forte, and with every project I take on, I continually strive to push boundaries and expand realities. My projects span the art, fashion, and commercial words. Five years ago I was listed as one of "25 artist to watch" by Modern Painter Magazine, and shortly after, I had my first solo exhibition , an experimental film dubbed  "Light Year" projected on Manhattan Bridge. 

My foray into fashion started with New York Fashion Week, and more precisely, with the installations and set designs I created for

New York-based designer Carolina Sarria. When I moved to Los Angeles, I was invited to showcase my designs at Los Angeles Fashion Week.

The show not only featured painstakingly detailed and visually captivating clothes, it told a story.

Because of its success, I was recognized by Vogue as a must-know designer from LAFW.

 

A year later, I melted and molded my 2017 LAFW-show pieces—a series of Game-of-Thrones-esque silicone dresses, footwear and headpieces—into a sculpture. The sculpture was selected by the prestigious Art Basel Miami.   

In 2018, I was brought back to LAFW to debut my second collection—a performance that mixed choreography, fashion, a little bit of magic and—as is always the case with any of my shows—a message that challenges societal values and norms.
