Poland’s ancient imperial capital, the city of Krakow remains the nation’s cultural center, and is the birthplace of the artist Natasza Czajkowski.
Ms. Czajkowski attended the Krakow School of Fine Arts, where she drew on her youthful experiences to create work in a variety of media including painting, drawing, photography and graphic design. During her studies, she grew familiar with contemporary American art and was heavily influenced by the Pop Art of the 1960s.
Ms. Czajkowski continued her education in Poland, attending the School of Fashion Design from 1994 - 1997. During this period, she worked for the National Museum, where she was employed as a photographer. In 1998, she immigrated to the United States, settling in New York City, where she devoted herself to sculpture and painting.
Now a Florida resident, she is represented by Gallery Biba with sculptures made of aluminum, a material that is both temperamental and technically demanding.
