21st-century art is a difficult field of practice, making it incredibly dynamic in its interpretation to both artist and viewer. This, in turn, has left the world today with rare artists who are creative and truly understand the meaning of art. Jute Fashion Magazine caught up with Aneta Klejnowska as she shared with us her story and motivation behind each piece.

Aneta, could you please tell us about your background, and how it influenced your art?

Well, I’ve always been interested in art. First, it was fashion, then architecture and afterwards painting and graphics. As a child, I took part in many theatrical performances, dance shows, and fashion shows. I knew then that I wanted to work in a creative industry. I started the beginning of my professional career from a few internships in fashion companies. I graduated in interior design, where I could continue to learn and discover aesthetics on other levels. After completing my BA, I have received title Master of Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw with a major in Graphic Arts and I devoted a greater amount of free time to painting. So, I can say that I was born with an artistic soul, but looking in the right direction in many areas. What I am most happy about is that my work is also my passion and gives me a lot of pleasure.

From the beginning of the rough sketches to the final touches of a piece, how do you know when a work is finished?

Sometimes it is very hard to know at which point I should finish my work. I don’t want to stop before it has reached its full potential, but also don’t want to overwork it. My work is finished when I have decided that I am happy with the result and I am satisfied with what I have created.

How do you navigate the art world?

I am trying to explore art in many ways. I often travel: combining business with pleasure. I relax and visit the city, but also learn and take inspiration for further projects. I visit museums, galleries and my art fairs where I can come across works of the greatest masters.

Which of the current art world trend are you following?

I try to keep up to date with trends in art. Trends are changing all the time, as with any business. But I truly believe you should not blindly pursue them, but stick to your style.

Alright, let’s take a look at your workspace, what is your most important artist tool? Is there something you can’t live without in your studio?

Honestly, I often combine different techniques in my works, which is why I always have a few indispensable tools to work with.  I deal mostly with graphics and painting, but also with illustrations and computer graphics. Each of these techniques requires appropriate materials, but the most important thing for me is the place where I work. I have my studio in which I create most of the works, but I also happen to work in the open air or in cafes. Undoubtedly the thing I can’t live without during work is music. Depending on nature and what I’m doing, I’m listening to something else.

Who are your biggest influences?

As for my artistic authorities, the greatest is a painter with a complicated personality with an extraordinary talent. Freud has been creating works for years; he has been constantly returning to them, improving and refining details and colors. I also work long over the painting; I try to take care of every detail. I also like impressionist art and figurative painting and artists including Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Francis Bacon or Willem de Kooning. When it comes to more commercial contemporary art, I admire the work of many poster artists and illustrators such as: Roman Cieślewicz, Mieczysław Wasilewski, David Downton Richard Haines and Ignasi Monreal.

Is there an element of art you enjoy working with most?

I do not have any special element of art with which I like to work. Every creative work gives me a pleasure.

How have you been able to develop your career?

My grandparents and parents were my authority. Each of them, with hard work, achieved great success. They are an example of how passion and heart put into what you do leads to happiness and fulfillment in both the private and professional fields. I am trying to educate and develop all the time and follow their way. I graduated in interior architecture and graphics and illustrations in Paris. I have completed several courses in Poland and abroad. I’ve been on many internships, including New York. There are many things in my career, which I am proud of.

Are there any of your artworks you are most proud of?

There is no particular work; I am very proud of each and in its own way is unique to me and I have put a lot of heart into each one during preparation.

What inspires you?

I get inspiration from observing the world around me. Focus on small details of everyday life inspires a lot. I love observing the surrounding world – places, sounds, flavors, movements and nature.
