Martin Lacko, who’s currently working towards his thesis in the studio of Vladimír Skrepl and Jan Šerých at Prague’s Academy of Fine Arts, has been keeping himself occupied with the fantastic genre on a long-term basis. Through narrative paintings or digital drawings, he hints at the genre’s depiction mainly in video games – a medium he consequently took up himself and also started programming actively. The main narrative almost always features exlusively female heroines.
