About Agata Wojcieszkiewicz

Agata is a figurative artist, specializing in painting and drawing.

“My art is something more than exact depiction of the reality. It is my personal expression of thoughts and feelings, resulting from a perception of surrounding world, ruled and filtered by unknown processes from the subconscious parts of my mind. Following my instincts and intuition, I experiment with different techniques and media in order to be able to free myself from academic boundaries and distinguish my individual language.”
