Marta Tomczyk

I am a graphic artist, author of several graphic cycles and wordless books. In my artistic interests, I deal with the problem of the horizon, starting from a topographical phenomenon and ending with an idea.
In the field of artistic interests, in my works I raise too the problem of the perceptual space.
I am moved by everyday life, its simplicity, which creates the possibility of telling stories, creating a narrative.

Artistic graphics is not only my profession, but above all a passion that I constantly cultivate, making sure to constantly stimulate curiosity in perceiving reality.

In the years 1997-2002 I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź, which I graduated with honors in June 2002.
I am a scholarship holder of the Minister of Culture of the Republic of Poland, a laureate of a large grant in the "Young Poland" scholarship program organized by the Minister of Culture of the Republic of Poland, as well as a scholarship holder of the Foundation for Tadeusz Kulisiewicz in Warsaw. Winner of awards and distinctions in national and international competitions, e.g. the International Contemporary Painting Competition in Chieti, Italy, the "Josep de Ribera" Graphics Biennale in Valencia, Spain, the Graphics Triennial in Cairo, Egypt, the Caixanova Graphics Biennial in Ourence, Spain, the Polish Triennial of Contemporary Drawing in Lubaczów.
I have participated in over a hundred collective exhibitions, I am the author of eighteen individual exhibitions (e.g. Fabryka Trzciny in Warsaw; Inignif.V.Europaischees Kultur Centrum in Cologne, Germany; AMCOR Rentsch Gallery in Łódź; Centrum Kultury Koneser in Warsaw).
