“One shall no longer paint interiors, people reading and women knitting. They will be people who are alive, who breathe and feel, suffer and love.” Edvard Munch
Being very inspired by Munch’s work, naturally I when I found out he had an exhibition at the British Museum, I had to buy a ticket.
The show compromised mainly of his prints and wasn’t quite what I expected. Documenting not just Munch’s work but also his entire life chronologically, it made me reconsider my romantic view of his bohemian lifestyle. Munch’s “Scream” wasn’t solely inspired by his sister’s struggle with schizophrenia, but also his own struggles.
Young Munch was incredibly idealistic and really gave himself to the ideas that drove Oslo’s social rebels of his time. Later on he withdrew from the circles and gave up heavy drinking. His first love was unrequited and he never settled down happily.
I particularly liked his portraits of friends and the Sick Child. I was slightly disappointed to only see a black and white print of the Scream. I also felt the British Museum could’ve brought more work together for £17.
The Fournier Street exhibition is the second Eleven group show we organised after meeting at the City Lit Developing Arts Practice course.
I showed some new and old work from the States of the Mind series.
Other artists showed a variety of conceptual, figurative and abstract work.
At the end of the City Lit, Developing Arts Practice course we organised two exhibitions, the first of which took place in the RK Burt Gallery.
I showed my abstract series and a few new works as part of the exhibition. I also enjoyed creating the private view leaflets.
The States of the Mind preview was a great success. A lot of friends came to see the pieces and most importantly Joanna Ciechanowska of the Polish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith got a chance to see my work and we could discuss my exhibiting in their gallery there.
It was a great pleasure to get to share my art with my friends at POSK in Hammersmith. I have been attending the creative meetings for quite some time but always felt too shy to show my work. I finally overcame my fear and was very happy with how everyone received the work.
Thank you to Artur Wielguś for making this possible! :)
Absolutely thrilled to have been featured on the www.promoteyourself.news platform. An article about my work is displayed amongst those about other talented artists from across the world.

Been super busy with the translation course, which is why it took me so long to write this up.
The October Grid Art Fair was enjoyable and a success. I got to meet lot's of other artists both professional and emerging and talk about how I can start to make a living from art.
Here my Gia piece hangs with the other winners of the competition, who got to hang for free.
So...I exhibited my work to the public for the first time at the Parallax Art Fair last weekend. It was a great insight and a much anticipated first step into the art world.
It was a pleasure to meet all those amazing people and find out how it all works.
