About this event

Art exhibition & fireside chat with Polish artist Justyna Kisielewicz on “A dream is a wish your heart makes, the journey of an entrepreneur with extraordinary ability in arts”

Einstein once said "Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution." For the 27th edition of the Startup Grind Warsaw, we are proud to have an entrepreneur with mindboggling imagination and exemplary dedication, Justyna Kisielewicz

Polish artist Justyna Kisielewicz, who currently resides in California, considers Western culture, consumption, and capitalism, as well as other issues that affect the state of the world, through the lens of contemporary Bay Area life. Glamour and humor find a place in her often politically charged works that ask us to question our values and our place on the world stage. Her paintings are cheeky, trendy cool and popping with clever and lively unexpected colors. Kisielewicz’s paintings are filled with references to modern pop culture and inspired by the tradition of American and European aesthetics. She has been celebrated by international fashion and lifestyle magazines, as the “pop culture obsessed” “rebellious artist from Poland” and as the “princess of pop culture”.

Her artistic style and subject matter is non-repetitive, however, it is consistent and sexy. She freely uses inspirations, words, and symbols that are subconsciously rooted in the eye of the viewer through culture. She is the master of color and sublime technical expression. Kisielewicz’s work is uniquely self-referential and emotionally honest.

Justyna Kisielewicz received her MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland. Her work has been featured in Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, Business Insider, Juxtapoze, Supersonic Magazine, and Hi-Fructose. Kisielewicz’s work has been the subject of exhibits in international galleries and museums in Warsaw, Wausau, San Francisco, Texas, Sydney, and Berlin. Her work has been presented at art fairs in Hamburg (Germany) and Maastricht (Netherlands) and San Francisco. Most recently Kisielewicz’s work has been acquired to fill the permanent collection of the National Museum in Gdansk, Poland.
