Janina Wierusz Kowalska

Hometown: Bielsko-Biała

Based in: Bielsko-Biała, Poland

 

Janina Wierusz Kowalska comes from a familyboasting artistic talents. One of her distant ancestors was Alfred Jan Wierusz Kowalski, an apprentice of Joseph Brandt and a great Polish painter, who represented the Munich School with a title of ‘honorary professor of the Munich Academy of Fine Arts’.

She studied Industrial Design and Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. She founded and supervised The School of Visual Arts, for which she created her own program, connecting the Socratic idea of creative dialoque with the universal, interdisciplinary education based on great ideas of Bauhaus.

She practices painting, drawing, textile installation and photography. She sporadically and selectively designs interiors of both public and private buildings while treating each and every project as a unique and inimitable piece of art. She presented her works at individual and group exhibitions in Buenos Aires, Brussels, Warsaw, Cracow, Bielsko-Biała, at the Old Castle in Żywiec. The last individual exhibition has taken place in Bolesław Biegas Museum, Warsaw, 2020. Her works can be found in many private collections.

About Janina Wierusz Kowalska


IconInspires

What inspires you?

My experience in making art has led me a long way. From analysis to synthesis. From dynamic, "free gesture" (a style I still love) to organized design. It does not mean however, that there is no dynamism in my syntetic works - there is the game of light and shadow, the demanding visual perspective and the radical colour composition.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

In my work I use simple tools; acrylic and oil paints, brushes, canvases and paper boards for more expressive, and quick projects. In my current practice, after years of hesitation and (ofter wrong) decisions, I like to quote Cicero: „One should exercise what he profesed”.
