Artist
Maciej Ciesla Warzymice, Poland

Artist Maciej Ciesla depicts folklore, fauna, musicians and nymphs in spontaneous, expressive scenes. He says art has always accompanied him, and he studied at the Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland. After graduation, Maciej suffered from a loss of eyesight, which could have been detrimental to his painting career. However, he says it became a huge inspiration for him. "The desire to be alienated and to react and express. They became my motivation." In his current work, nature plays an important role, and Maciej regularly travels alone in the mountains. "I can plunge into my own inner life, feel the loneliness and the harsh atmosphere of a hostile landscape. I believe that honesty in painting is the only way to create individual aesthetics, and because nature is close to me, it also accompanies me in painting."
