90-Yr-Old Leaves Wonderful Legacy By Transforming Town Into Gorgeous Work Of Art.

Galleries tend to display their masterpieces indoors, but in Louka, Czech Republic, the real art can be found outside.

Meet Anežka (Agnes) Kašpárková, a former agricultural worker who discovered her passion for painting after she retired. The late 90-year-old spent her golden years turning her town into a gorgeous museum by covering the buildings with stunning blue motifs.

Inspired by women who previously painted Morovian designs onto the white houses nearby, Agnes took over the tradition and added her own special touch.

During the spring and summers months, she could most often be found painting blue flowers onto various houses or the village chapel. While photos of her work have gone viral over the years, she said she wasn’t looking for fame or attention. She was simply doing what she loved.

“I am an artist,” she said. “I just enjoy wall painting, and I want to help.”

Her passion is evident in the intricate patterns she left behind! She never planned her designs; she let her mood and mindset guide her brush in the moment. Of course, her work is so precise that you’d have no idea!
