What are the opinions about Ania Luk’s art?

Check out as well reviews of customers who bought limited editions - reviews at google * About 'Sunrise Sunset 2' "For this piece, Ania Luk uses subtle hues of warm and cool colours which contrast each other, like the sunrise and sunset. The use of geometric figures to compose the figure of a woman along with the textural nature adds depth to the work. She often finds pleasure in painting women and uses an abstract, non-defining space to highlight the beauty of the human body."   Shuchita Kapur/ The Artling from Singapore, November'20 * "Ania is a master artist.

Georges Braque – paintings of women and cubism

Born in 1882, Georges Braque was a French painter, sculptor and collagist, who was most well known for being the founder of Cubism alongside famous artist Pablo Picasso. Before he created the theory of Cubism and introduced it to his paintings, his early works had been initially influenced by Impressionism, Pointillism and last but not least - Fauvism.

Interview with Ania Luk

A fragment of the interview given to a cultural blog from San Francisco in May 2018. How did you get into the art world? Is there any special story about this? It's not that one particular moment made me suddenly interested in art. I had been looking for my own way for a long time, although the awareness that I want to create, has been with me since my childhood. As a child I loved drawing women's characters inspired by my mother's journals. I was dreaming I would become a fashion designer one day. Later, when came the time to…

Andrzej Wróblewski – My favorite painters – Part 1

I have a few favorite artists. I'll start from one, who is perhaps the least known of the bunch. Andrzej Wróblewski Andrzej Wroblewski is a Polish painter who after the II World War became famous for his original paintings devoted mainly to a human. He was creating both experimental and abstract paintings, as well as inspired by the social realism. His favorite technique was especially oil, gouache, drawing, graphics (including monotype). Wroblewski was primarily a realist and figurative. His early series of abstract paintings of the late 40s - solar abstractions, not really raise my admiration and my impression is…

Contemporary art vs. modern – what’s the difference?

Contemporary art vs. modern art - what’s the difference?

Guest writings – What was under the eyelids of Andrzej Wajda?

Introduction What is afterimage? Professor Władysław Strzeminski explained it this way: you are gazing at what surrounds you, then you close your eyes. What you see under the eyelids, it is afterimages. Strzeminski was a well known and respected avant-garde painter before the II World War (obviously valued by those who appreciated the avant-garde). After the war, however, the fate of a prominent artist unfolded tragically. He was expelled from Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, brought to humiliation and misery. He probably died of tuberculosis in 1952. Andrzej Wajda studied painting at that time in Krakow. He belonged to…

The beginning

Passion for art Passion for drawing and painting as the majority of children I had showed before I started talking. The farther in years the more visual experiments I had on my account. With time, my joyful creativity has been somewhat organized as I began to attend classes of drawing and painting, in the various community centers. Then there was five years at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. At that time, I painted mostly oil - still life, nudes, and in spare time abstractions. Then came a very looong break. Fortunately, this period has gone and now I can…
