Ewa Juszkiewicz Biography

Through her painting, Ewa Juszkiewicz (b. 1984, Gdansk, Poland) challenges visual conventions and confronts stereotypical perceptions of women’s beauty in classical European painting. By deconstructing and reinterpreting the female subject in historical artworks, Juszkiewicz undermines their constant, indisputable character. One of the most celebrated contemporary Polish painters of today, Juszkiewicz challenges the viewers’ perception by experimenting with the form of the female figure and face, balancing human and inhuman elements within her work to reveal a style that is at once classical in technique, yet subversive and rebellious in content.
