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!
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.
In 2011 Ula Eriksen mentioned to me in confidence she wanted to open a restaurant in Sadyba district in Warsaw. I was responsible for designing the logo and all the prints for Nabo.

Łapińska Porcelana is my own brand where I design and create porcelain handicrafts. The most important aspect of my work is attention to detail and ensuring no two pieces are alike. The idea blossomed from my love of porcelain- the most beautiful material on earth.
Kasia Michalski, gallery owner, first bought one of my Łapińska Porcelana plates, and then contacted me to participate in the group exhibition titled The Drawers. I was immediately overjoyed and very excited since it was my first collaboration with a gallery.
