Collection: Joanna Pilarczyk

Joanna is a London-based contemporary figurative painter and art educator. Born in Poland, Joanna studied at the Art University in Zielona Gora. She holds MA degree in Visual Arts and Art Education.

After moving to London over a decade ago, Joanna fell in love with the city immediately. Amazed and entranced by diverse cultures and the vibrant energy, Joanna began to paint oil portraits of new acquaintances and friends within the artist community of North London.

In her recent vibrant paintings, a contrast to her earlier work, she focusses on self-portraits, intimacy, femininity, self-care and relationship with her partner and nature. She says 'In my colourfully decorated flat filled with plants, and isolated from family and friends, my surroundings and my partner became my only world, more intensely experienced and observed than ever before.'
