I am Krystyna Krasowska-Cicha. I am contemporary Polish artist based in Drogheda in Ireland. I graduated from Academy of Fine Art in Lodz, where I received degree in fine art in 2009. I am acclaimed landscape and sacred images artist who paints in oil on location and from my home studio.
Since I was a child, I loved to draw with pencil and coal. I was so amazed with what you can do with such a simple tool like a pencil. But this was just the beginning. Oil technique brought me to a completely new world – my world. Full range of possibilities, colors, texture, mixed layers – contrasty heavy impasto against thin, delicate passages…just breath-taking. Art become my way of living and linked me to God. My aim as an artist is to create paintigs that express the beauty of God in the beauty of the world around me. My creative process involves painting from life as well as working in the art studio. I find an inspiration in works of Old Masters such as J.W.Turner, A. Zorn like and masters of impressionism such as O.C.Monet , V.v.Gogh and in works of J. Pankiewicz, who represents polish art movement named “The Kapists”.
The main subject of my artworks are sacred images and land/sea/sky-scapes. My art is a tribute to God’s love and creation.
All my canvases are hand made form the finest fabric and wood. I use a good quality base coat Gesso, oil paints ( Van Gogh, Renesans, Phoenix, Winsor & Newton ) and top coats (dammar varnish medium anti UV). A signed certificate of authenticity is attached to each of my artworks.
