About the Artist

Coming from a graphic design background Martyna's work tends to feel clean. Although the brush strokes may seem loose and uncalculated the picture ends up looking quite crisp and aligned because of thick illustrative outlines, bold colors, and solid color fields.

About the Artist

Coming from a graphic design background Martyna’s work tends to feel clean. Although the brush strokes may seem loose and uncalculated the picture ends up looking quite crisp and aligned because of thick illustrative outlines, bold colors, and solid color fields.

Martyna always had an interest in drawing female forms and animals, which she believes stems from her interest in observing the human relationship with nature. She is also very fond of creating fantasies and building classic abstract scenes using geometric shapes . Her artistic influences range from the works of Lichtenstein and Klimpt to 80’s euro pop and textile patterns.

Though having grown up in the small city of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Martyna’s mother was born in Poland and instilled a culture of travel within their family. Of all the places she’s traveled, Martyna remembers Tokyo as being one of her absolute favorite destinations. She was particularly taken by the impact their national culture has on their art. Channeling her experiences abroad, Martyna hopes to bring new ideas and styles to her work, incorporating the cleanliness and thoughtful use of color from Japanese textiles and screen prints.
