We just took on this new artist, and she's AMAZING! Shop her store here.
Read her interview below and learn where her inspirations and love for art come from:
What initially sparked your passion for art?
It is said that necessity is the mother of invention which in my case meant that because American toys were prohibited in Communist Poland I had to draw it for myself. That’s how it started - I drew Disney characters and than little by little I invented my own world and eventually art.
What are some of the moods, messages, or ideas that you try to convey through your work?
People are obsessed about form and seriousness. Why so serious? I like to juxtapose high and low culture, old masters technique and modern modes.
Grandiose displays of consumerism seem to be a reoccurring theme in your paintings. Tell us a little about this.
I think we all should be capitalists and celebrate the possibility of getting what you want…and usually it doesn’t stop on want. Everybody wants more. Thoughtful consumerism makes sense but consuming for consuming is passé.
What is your favorite quote?
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken” - Oscar Wilde.
Describe your dream project in world where money, space, and time is no longer a factor.
Eating macarons with Marie Antoinette and steaks with Oscar Wilde while painting the White House pink.
Which design from your brand J_Kisielewicz would you say is your favorite?
I love We the Donuts which I’ll wear during my solo art show in Berlin in March this year.
When you’re not creating amazing art, what are you doing?
For me it seems like I’m painting non stop, so there’s no much time left for anything else. I’m also a passionate workaholic who paints to live and lives to paint.
Where can people find more of your work?
On my website www.justynakisielewicz.com, Facebook profile where I update infos about shows and Instagram with pics giving an insight to how some of the paintings are created.
