Statement:

 

Basia is a Hamburg based artist. Her free-style figurative paintings blend childlike seriousness with freaky beauty. Being aware of constant influences by life, art and media, she condenses imagination during the creative process and works neither with templates nor the observation of outside objects. She uses oil, acrylic and marker on canvas or paper. Her aim is to overcome realism humorously without being disjointed and without creating synthetic empty space secrets. Figures emerge that oscillate between enraptured cartoons and classic tired melancholy. Basia studied Fine Arts at University of Fine Arts Hamburg Lerchenfeld.

Meanwhile over 900 of her small size paintings and over 1000 art dolls are scattered around the world in private collections. This confirms her conviction to paint and build easily shareable and for everyone affordable art.
