Artists: Joanna Mieszko-Nita
Born in 1969 in Trzcińsko-Zdrój. Graduated from Państwowa Wyższa Szkoła Sztuk Plastycznych [State School of Fine Art.]s in Poznań. Diploma at the sculpting faculty headed by professor Józef Petruk in 1996. Her diploma work – a sculpture set in limestone entitled “Zmagania” [Struggles] – is displayed at Malta lake in Poznań.
She is a sculptor, drawer, painter and photographer, who organized numerous exhibitions, outdoor painting workshops and artistic events home and abroad. She likes scale, large formats, grand paintings. As a sculptor, Joanna Mieszko-Nita transfers a specific thinking style and artistic tools into her paintings and drawings. Every portrait or nude seem like sculpting sketches. Classical themes the artist chooses are backed by a deep need of expression. For Joanna Mieszko-Nita, color might as well be non-existent – she limits herself mostly to blacks and whites. With this limited selection of formal means, she manages to achieve maximum, often monumental results.
