Misia Łukasiewicz

Misia Łukasiewicz was born in 1989 in Warsaw, Poland. She strongly identifies herself with the Polish landscape and the cultural traditions of Central and Eastern Europe.

“I ask myself and other people, what is the meaning of homeland and I explore topic of human connection with space. I received my MFA in Academy of Fine Arts of Warsaw in 2019 and BFA in Art History at the University of Warsaw in 2012. I strongly identifies myself with the Polish landscape. Observe and illustrate human behavior, cultural holidays, celebrations of tradition, and connection between nature and human beings. In my projects, I collaborate with local people – I am interested in how people in different cultures perceive space. In addition to carrying out social projects and travelling, my greatest passion remains painting. I always returns to Masovia, and my family homeland, which still inspires and fascinates me, especially during the winter. My paintings are created in plain air, in contact with nature, in accordance with old traditions of landscape painting.
In 2017, I interviewed and observed farmers from the Cane Water Farm in Georgia, USA to learn their methods for describing the measurement and meaning 50 acres of space”.

In 2016, during a stipend at the Caetani Center she worked with native Syilx people. The project, titled “No Man’s land”, took place in the Okanagan Valley, BC, Canada. In 2012, she stayed in Palermo, Italy on an art scholarship at Accademia di Belle Arte. Her work has been invited to group exhibitions, such as “Intervention” in Museum Riso, Palermo, Italy, “Landscape Heritage” Vernon, BC, Canada, “Wedding” Propaganda Gallery, Warsaw, Poland and exhibition of young Polish artist in European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium.
