Malwina Konopacka: traditional techniques and modernist inspiration

Malwina Konopacka is a graphic artist in Warsaw, who studied at her city’s Academy of Fine Arts and then specialized in illustration at Berlin’s Universität der Künste.

Her works have been published in magazines including “Elle” and “Bluszcz” – but she has also embraced painting on ceramic, using strong lines and great bright hues to make her style stand out. Konopacka uses traditional techniques, firing her ceramic pieces in a kiln, but brings her own original touch with soft recesses highlighted by color. She began using this creative signature with the OKO series and continued with La Citè: fifteen vases and thirty plates for an exhibition in Marseilles last September. Her works combine natural elements like water, plants and flowers with modernist aesthetics inspired by the famous Cité Radieuse, one of Le Corbusier’s Unité d'Habitation.
