HELLO! MY NAME IS MAGDALENA

I am a graphic designer, illustrator and ceramicist. I am working in spaces where these three areas intersect and integrating art inspirations from the past and modern concepts into my creations. Each one is a new adventure and an opportunity to learn and grow!

CELEBRATING THE 125TH ANNIVERSARY OF LE CORBUSIER'S BIRTH

graphic design

Varsovie Radieuse. Le Corbusier’s Return Behind the Iron Gate was the exhibition that consisted of 11 posters-collages, 460 x 250 cm in dimension, which depicted a graphic interpretation of Le Corbusier’s 10 key principals of urban design. I had to make my own graphic interpretation of a statement such as, “The sun should reach every flat for a couple hours a day, even during the less favourable seasons”. I chose a collage since it allows for interweaving the fresh colours with old photographs.
