About

 


London born 
artist Ewa Wilczynski, 
a 
graduate 
of 
Central 
Saint 
Martins
 and
 the Académie
 des 
Beaux‐Arts 
in 
Paris, 
has 
been 
heralded 
as 
a
 "future 
one 
to 
watch" 
by 
the 
Federation 
of 
British
 Artists.


Described 
by 
polymath 
Raymond 
Tallis
 as
 ‘achingly 
beautiful’ 
her 
work 
explores
suggestive 
dichotomies,
 particularly 
in 
human 
nature 
and 
metaphysics. Wilczynski
says:
 “I’m 
not 
really 
too 
interested 
in 
absolutes, 
complete
 definitions 
or 
painting
‘about’ 
something. 
The
 space
 in‐between
 is 
what 
intrigues
 me.” 

Within her composition, spatial and sensory dimensions are fused in a whirling mass to reveal a series of visceral self-portraits painted with intense flashes of colour. It is here that colour and character become synonymous: the sensory qualities of colour are changeable and in a state of constant flux. Certain colours can appear more vivid or subdued depending on their surroundings; much the same with character and emotions in human nature.

For Wilczynski, art exists beyond the canvas and outside of the studio. It is an all-encompassing concept and, as such, manifests itself in fashion, style, and lifestyle. Considered a muse to many in the worlds of fashion, film and photography, she has been shot by the likes of Rankin, Gozra Lozano, and Paulina Surys.
