Blanka Pesja (1963, Czech Republic), is a conceptual artist, art educator and promotor. In 1992 she finished her formal education at the art academy ARTEZ in The Netherlands. Her body of work includes writing, painting, performances and video installations. She organizes various art projects and collaborates as a lyricist with singer/songwriters and bands.
From the beginning, Blanka has been involved in developing the study programme at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam’s Pop Department. In 2009, she initiated the project DarkEnsemble, a free collaboration project open to musicians who want to explore the relationship between language and music and who have an interest in balancing the problematic interrelatedness of electronic and acoustic sound.
In 2016 Blanka obtained her Master of Art Education degree at the HKU, graduating on topics which she now applies in her Arts & Literature class. She has also developed the Trimodus Method to Lyric Writing, which is used in the CvA Online course.
