90-Year-Old Grandma in the Czech Republic Passes Time By Artistically Painting Houses



In the small Czech village of Louka, in southern Moravia, one woman has made it her mission to beautify the homes of her neighbors. Agnes Kasparkova is a 90-year-old former agricultural worker who picked up a new hobby in her retirement, painting houses.

Kasparkova uses her spare time to paint traditional Moravian motifs in bright blue-ultramarine across the walls of Louka’s buildings.

A favorite space to paint is the village chapel, which gets annual touch-ups by the artist. She springs up on the scaffolding and paints a flowery motif across the facade.

Using her imagination, she doesn’t plan out her work in advance, letting her brush and fantasy decide the final results. Previously, other women painted the white Moravian houses, passing down the tradition to Kasparkova.

Her work is similar to the painted houses of Zalipie, with their colorful flower garlands.
