Info

We try to answer the question about the situation of the creator now, being a visitor, a refugee, a nomad, an artist. Every Thursday we meet in a friendly circle: the WRO team, artists, artists, people willing to share presence and curiosity.
You are invited!

Jul 7, 6:00 PM – Vita Magomedova (Віта Магомедова)
Iconic Workshop

Jul 14, 6:00 PM – Mark Pohodin (Марк Погодін)
photographer, poet, economist

The artist about himself:
I graduated from an economics degree and a one-year program at the Academy of Photography. I got into visual media by “accident”, that is, a friend recommended me in 2014 to buy an analog camera for 50 zloty. Before that, I was more interested in literature and poetry, as you can sometimes see.

Jul 21, 6:00 PM – Oleksandra Balytska
illustrator, graphic designer

Oleksandra Balytska was born in Kyiv in 1995. She graduated from the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw with a master’s degree in graphic design. She works in book illustration, cooperates with Polish and foreign magazines (including New York Times, The Atlantic, and Refinery29), and creates her original graphic designs.

Artist about herself:
Hyperbolized proportions and surrealistic elements are the keywords that best characterize my illustrations. I had studied at university for several years, and then the idea of experimenting with the proportions of the human body came as the opposite of academic drawing. This approach gave a sense of freedom. However, I can’t say that I ignore all the rules: color, composition, and form are still very important to me. The female characters in surrealistic decorations from a dream balance the border between the real and the fantasized world. They are all imaginary figures. However, I believe that, in a way, every artist inadvertently draws themselves. For me, playing with body proportions is an attempt to find harmony and beauty in unusual forms.

Let’s meet at WRO!
