About me

I was born on the 6th September in Bialystok in Poland, the capital of the Podlasie region. I spent my childhood there, where I also graduated high school. From October 2004 I moved to Poznań, where I graduated with my master degree in interior design and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts. From October 2008 to February 2009 I held an Erasmus scholarship at the Faculty of Arts at the University of Granada, Spain. Currently, I live and study in Vienna at the Academy of Fine Arts. 

In 2009 I received a grant from the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage for the project “Dating Game”. Two years later I received the scholarship “Young Artists” from the mayor of Bialystok for the project “Sacred and Profaned Love” which was inspired by Jerzy Nowosielski’s art. The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage awarded me with the year-long Arts Scholarship in the 2011/2012 academic year.

In my artistic works I deal with the creative understanding and shaping of space. I investigate, if what connects our imagination and our memory can be called space. I answer the question about the physical frames of space, which is for me a place limited by some borders as well as a void on the horizon.

Impression of the modern digital landscape and the relationship  man - environment are the main fields of my interests. I think my art is a remedy for the loss of outlook and loss of the reference point in contemporary locative landscape. The trip through its microcosm allows me to define my relationship with the world and its condition.The virtual picture of my universe I shape mainly using architecture, which is a special type of the memory of loci.
