Martyna Pinkowska

Martyna Pinkowska was born in 1997. She graduated from the Faculty of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice in 2022, where she defended her diploma exhibition Polly Pocket Syndrome under the supervision of Professor Jacek Rykała. She works with painting and film, creates objects and installations. In her work, the artist reflects on what shapes her female identity. A feeling of uncertainty is the basis of her works, in which fantasy and reality intertwine. She finds recurring elements in her own experiences and those of women closest to her, recognising universal fears, anxieties and desires. Pinkowska explores how we navigate expectations and paradigms of femininity, focusing on the relationship between mother and daughter. She lives and works in Warsaw.
