Ben Uri collection

Work by Scarlet Nikolska

Scarlet Nikolska was born in the Czech Republic in 1949 and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague from 1969-74. She settled in England in the year of her graduation and had a solo show at Ben Uri in 1975 which reflected the characters and architecture of the old Prague Ghetto. The Daily Telegraph observed that it reflected 'the history and the spiritual tradition of her Jewish faith through the figures and forms she lived among in the Jewish ghetto [...] a remarkable record of a way of life and thought which is now dying out'. She later travelled widely including in the USA and Israel and relocated to Brussels with her husband and two children. Her work has been exhibited in London, Paris, Brussels, Rio de Janeiro, Vienna, Prague, Bologna, Chicago, New York and Japan.
