Agnieszka Gzyl is a Polish artist who’s original technique, using silicone on canvas, speaks to the observer’s senses of sight and touch. Born in 1972 in Warsaw, she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of Władysław Strzeminski in Lodz, Poland with a master’s degree, soon to have a doctorate.
Having a degree in architecture, Agnieszka worked at a commercial real estate company for 17 years. In 2011 she left the corporate world and moved to Paris where she had her first exhibition.
“After graduating from the university, I became an interior architect and learned to work with an assortment of materials, one of which was construction silicone. Now as an artist, I use silicone in my paintings, to give them a three dimensional effect, making them touchable.”
