About Agnieszka Potocka-Makoś

I am Polish abstract painter. I was born in 1986 in Bilgoraj, Poland. Since I was a child I was fascinated by art, drawing, painting and other creative activities. I tried to combine that with a proper work, so I have become an architect. Right now I feel that painting is my second full time work which I am still trying to develope and to make it better, to make my style more characteristic and better known .

I feel that abstract painting has a special power to influence on the receivers eyes and mind. I love to use structure on my canvases, sometimes more, sometimes just a little. It helps me to emphasize special details of the composition and gives a third dimention to the painting.

My other hobby is photography. I am specially interested in photography of architecture and industrial. I look for minimalism, great composition and perfect (for me) frame.
