KATARZYNA KUKLA is a visual artist based in Dublin. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland where she majored in painting.
Kata’s artistic works exemplify contemporary surrealistic explorations of organisms, botany and all areas of human existence, combining seemingly mismatched elements and symbols in the creation of her canvases. Using retrospective and digressive techniques she accumulates information from her personal experiences to compose a map of irregularly connected thoughts, as well as the effects of physical pains, mental torment and suffering on those thoughts. In her work, she also uses multimedia, print and creates installations which allow her to comment on the current state and anxieties of the global affairs. For a short while she has cooperated as an Artist in House of AKI-NA, started working at the project about integration of Refugee in Ireland.
