About Anna Polanowska

Anna Polanowska (1981) A member of the Association of Polish Artists and Designers (ZPAP).
A member of the Association Interrnationale des Arts Plastiques (AIAP) / International Association of Art (IAA).

A multi-talented artist, who worked not only as a painter, but also as a graphic and interior designer specializing in art and interior synergy. Anna creates personalized paintings for unique residential and commercial space that strengthens the energy of place and makes a trendy design. Furthermore Anna has more than 1,000 teaching hours lecturer experience.

Anna’s art works are large format abstract compositions mainly, full of bold, contrasting colors and varying texture applied to canvas. These energetic and expressive paintings contain multithreaded interpretations of color spots being an authentic, spontaneous and dynamic art.
The latest collection of collages on canvas by Anna Polanowska resulted from the combination of diverse techniques and media. A multi-step creative process includes - among others - techniques such as monotype, drawing, collage, computer graphics, painting as well as the use of various materials eg. paints, threads, wire, twine, nails, drawing pins etc.
It's a surreal presentation based on a courageous combination of forms, a deconstruction of commonly known shapes, modeling of images by including extraneous materials into their structure and application of impastos with varied texture of paints. All this gives the images a multiple dimensions, but also the multithreading of thought and the subject.
The artist provokes by motives inspired by the modern world, society, its transformations and the human relationship with the environment. Her collection of collages on canvas is the perfect match for those who appreciate fresh perspective on art, breaking the rules of generally accepted standards.

Anna regularly exhibits her paintings in the individual and collective exhibitions, international art reviews and art competitions. Her works are also auctioned at the most prominent auction house in Poland. The paintings and other works of Anna Polanowska are also held in private collections of several collectors and art fans.

Anna is also the co-founder of the DIRECTION (Kierunek) Painting Group. As a part of group she promotes awareness of art and stimulates the contact with art. She is also the founder and owner of the Sunday Painting Cocktails project – regular meetings on painting and art issues.
