WELA (Elisabeth Wierzbicka) painter and sculptor, was born in Cracow in 1964. She
studied at the Cracow Academy of Fine Art from 1984-1989. In 1989 she continued her
training at the Ecole Superiore of Fine Art in Paris and started her career as an
international artist in several countries. In her Paris studio she paints, draws
and makes monumental installations, which borrow ideas from the surface, volume and
materials in contemporary painting and sculpture.
She works with memory and identity, erasing and dividing time. Her approach is born
of a reflection on the visual and psychological impact of the artwork, given the
subjectivity of the viewer. She invites the viewer to play with his own perception,
to discover the interaction of multiple components, to discover, through metaphors,
the multi-meaning of the work.
