Ewa Wilczynski

Fine Artist currently studying at Central St.Martins.
Wilczynski's work is predominantly painting using the "subject matter" of portraiture and landscape questioning its depiction of the original truth, or more appropriately described the essence of portraiture and landscape. Believing that the heart of what is defined by this subject matter is not what defines it and is distillate from its image. An entity in itself.
Her recent work explores the enchanted nature of the ephemeral and its essence. Colour ignites with its noises and vibrations of Being. Her paintings allude to the mysterious recesses within personal myths and true statements: a magical metaphysical milieu.
Wilczynski has worked and exhibited in several London exhibitions including Art Barter whereby the premises was to question the public’s value of art by removing its relation to money and ‘Worthless’ which again explored similar principles with the value of art by creating works out of objects deemed valueless by the public.In January 2010 Wilczynski exhibited alongside Max Streicher, Penny Evans and Phil Richards in, ‘Portraits of a Patron’, University of Toronto Art Centre, Canada.Wilczynski continues to work closely with the charity Art Against Knives, having been commissioned to paint Ivo Gormley’s portrait for an awareness video shown in several East London galleries, Dray Walk Gallery in association with Honda and Lovebox festival.A love of the avante garde has inspired Wilczynski interests within fashion and make up, and has assisted styling with Gay Times and worked as a fashion journalist for Phoenix magazine throughout LFW.Most recently her work has been featured in Issue 5 of FAULT Magazine, and she has worked at Paris Fashion Week with J.W.Anderson.Presently Wilczynski continues to work in Paris at Des Beaux Arts Academie, and as a curator alongside The Lake Sisters for their group exhibition due in 2011.
