Ewa Juszkiewicz (born 1984) is a graduate of the Fine Arts Academy in Gdansk and a PhD student at the Fine Arts Academy in Cracow. She is one of Poland’s most popular painters of the young generation. In her work, she often refers to old masters, giving classical compositions a surrealistic touch.
Juszkiewicz explores changes in the canon of beauty, re-painting iconic portraits of women; in her canvases, monstrosity and decay meet grandeur of textiles and gems, pictured with full accordance to pre-modern rules.
She is a “Kompas Młodej Sztuki” laureate (2014) and a winner of the Grand Prix at “Bielska Jesień” Painting Biennial, as well as one of five Polish artists on the list of “100 Painters of Tomorrow”. She took part in a number of art fairs, such as Viennafair in Vienna, Artissima in Turin and ARCO in Madrid. Her works were also presented in many individual and group exhibitions, including the crucial “As You Can See. Polish Art Today” at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.
Her canvases are placed in private collections in Poland, Germany, Italy and the United States.
