“In the creation of illustrations, new challenges are my biggest joy, as well as interesting themes, the final effect of the printed illustration and an adequate fee.”
Paula Dudek takes inspiration from forms of mass culture, especially cinema, music and the internet. Her artist friends have also had a great influence on her, as well as folk art and travel. Her illustrations distinguish themselves by simple composition, a multitude of small elements, restricted colour palette and flat perspective. She refers to painting, sometimes using collage and various graphic techniques such as silk-screen printing, lithography or linocut. For the final stage, she uses graphic computer programs.
She graduated from two Universities, first of all graduating from the Painting Department at the Jan Długosz Academy in Częstochowa, then she earned her diploma at the Graphic Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, majoring in illustration and lithography. She won a post-graduate Erasmus internship at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, Holland. She has worked on many Polish periodicals including “Newsweek Polska”, “Kikimora”, “Cwiszn”, “Dobre Wnętrze” and “Kontakt”, as well as foreign publications such as the magazines, “Looped” and “La Rivista”. She designs posters, as well as music album covers and murals, and has presented her work in Poland and abroad at numerous individual and collective exhibitions.
