About the artist:

I am a graphic designer who returned to painting 5 years ago. I work with an acrylic paint. My focus is on humans - their psychology, social interactions and interests. From a distance my work reveals an overall composition and merely begins to show the interactions between the colors. After a closer inspection you can see their true nature - how tightly and deeply they are intertwined.

In my recent work I focus on positive emotions by dissecting colour, form and composition. My interest in positive emotions was born out of being tired of all the negative news that come from the media. The overwhelming feeling of being trapped in a negative and harmful environment was forged into the colourful paintings and happy feelings that create a barrier between the outside and inside world.

The journey through positive emotions helps to heal, to focus and in my case to channel those happy feelings. My goal is not only to show my revelations about certain emotions but it is also an attempt to recreate these feelings within the viewer - to help them remember those good moments in life and to escape from a trap of living in a hostile world.

To emphasis the elusiveness of the emotional states and the reality itself I developed a technique that allows me to work mainly with the flows of air and just a few touches of a brush. In all my paintings I use gold and white or black as the base of a colour palette.


"Weronika Dyląg - graphic designer, photographer, painter based in Warsaw, Poland. Born in 1987 works activly as a graphic designer. While working for one of the biggest advertising agencies in Poland - Isobar, she decided to get back to painting. To find peace of mind and to process emotions as well as work on inner mechanisms she turned to abstract painting as it gives her a way to express through colour. Her attention turned to nontraditional ways of spreading paint across canvas like pouring and using blows of air instead of brushes. It is her way to emphasis the way emotions spread and their ephemeral character.
