The Unique paintings project was established in the fall of 2021, when the director of the ADELI Foundation, Zuzana Cyprichová and her team, were looking for ways to reach out to potential donors and interest them in the idea of supporting the treatment of clients at ADELI. The project combines the art of leading world-renowned Slovak artists with the artistic expression of patients with neurological disabilities. The paintings are distinct, but united by a common theme, which each patient and artist grasped uniquely.

The Unique paintings were created by the ADELI foundation
The creation of the paintings took place at an art workshop, where artists accompanied and guided patients with work with a brush, canvas, and paints. There were rare human connections and unique cooperation with a completely unique result.
Artistic expression of people whose greatness of soul exceeds the capabilities of their body, was completed by top artists with respect, awe, and love. The result are paintings that are a celebration of playfulness, desires, dreams, and deep humanity.
The first artists who started this exceptional project with the ADELI Foundation were Marek Oramandík and Karol Zbyšo Felix. We continued with the second year, where Katarína Vavrová, Fero Lipták and Pavel Herman also participated.

Katka Vavrová, Jana Farmanová and Pavel Herman are also involved in the Christmas edition of Unique Pictures 2023

A new, unique series of unique paintings was created, which offers art lovers another dimension of connecting people who need help and personalities who want to help and invest their talent in health services. For lovers of unique art, there is a rare opportunity. Opportunity to support patients that demand rehabilitation at ADELI – by purchasing works in our auction.

The color of the paintings is typical for Herman. He also works on monumental works. Psychotronicists say that his work is full of positive energy, so his involvement in the health promotion project is completely appropriate.


Jana Farmanová is a figurative artist, she works with the painting gesture as a cultivated, concentrated painting construction unit. She paints what she is living trough, but also that, which exists outside the picture frame. She is interested in the topics of women and her world, her physicality and transformation, the process of maturing from a girl to a young woman, but also her maturity, cyclicity and motherhood. It reflects questions of love and interpersonal relationships, partnerships and family, including the relationship between mother and daughter. A specific place belongs to her relationship with nature, roots, home, identity, both personal and collective. She interprets her own observation and perception of the world, which she comments on through a subjective point of view, through a personal lived experience or sensory experience that deeply touches her. In 2015, she published a thematic publication for the exhibition in the Bratislava City Gallery called Jana Farmanová: In the sign of a virgin.
