About me / Agenda

Julia Moniewski was born in Inowroclaw, Poland. From an early age she was interested in music and painting. During her nine-year education at a music school, Moniewski also attended a secondary school for art. She then studied architecture at the University of Applied Sciences in Bydgoszcz (Poland) and turned to art at the same time. Since 2010, Moniewski has been living in Switzerland and working as a freelance artist.
Julia Moniewski's main focus is figure and nude drawing. However, she also draws pictures and portraits of people live or from photographs. In doing so, Moniewski combines painting with drawing, adding accents with charcoal and pencil after paint. The painter has remained true to art to this day: she describes music as the most important tool for painting.
Julia Moniewski very often chooses the female sex as a motif. "Women are a source of beauty, tenderness and sensitivity for me. Although they are considered fragile creatures, they are very strong and resilient inside," says Moniewski.
By combining the expressiveness of her works with the abstraction of forms, Moniewski has developed her own style of painting.
A central aspect in her work is the theme of identity. She usually leaves out the faces of her main actresses altogether in order to conceal their identity. "The dialogue between my soul and the world around me is a kind of search for my own identity," Moniewski explains. All the images would always embody her own experienced feelings and moods.
