Something funny and unreadable
Took part in: 2019
I started printing during my study at the Academy of Fine Art in Warsaw, but that was only school work. After graduating in 2007 I had I break year and then I bought a press for linocuts and started to work with graphic arts. In 2012, I was invited by my Alma Mater to work in the typography studio as a typesetter and teacher.
Actually it was during my study. We had two years of working with letterpress in the typography studio. At the time it was hard work for me…
My teacher was Prof. Mieczysław Wasilewski — a great polish graphic designer, famous from his posters.
I became a typesetter with patient help of Waldemar Przemyski, my letterpress teacher.
I became an artist thanks to Prof. Rafał Strent — a great polish graphic and painter.
I would have liked to be born in the late 60’s to experience polish punk as a drummer of polish punkrock band “Siekiera” (“siekiera” means “ax”).
Please, find them here:
I once worked with couple of friends and its was ok — we printed book together. I would like to lead workshops for groups of people. Mostly I work alone.
That I can count on them, that I can talk with them for hours.
While listening to good music.
Hahahahahahaha I like this question!!! Maybe something funny and unreadable.
Now: “Factfulness” by Hans Rosling, “The Three Body Problem” by Liu Cixin
previous one: an essay by Hans Rudolf Bosshard, its about prudence and intuition in graphic design.
Next one will be: book by Stanisław Lem – famous polish SF author or book by Olga Tokarczuk – also a famous polish writer.
It would be Leon Urbański, legend of polish typography.
It would be nice to have a RISO printer, I never tried that and I’m curious.
We don’t have a boston press unfortunately… It would be nice to have one.
In the future I would like to try offset, but probably it is too difficult…
In my own studio – more space!
In the Academy studio – better organization of machines and furniture (actually it is happening, we’re changing to a bigger place)
In nature, under a starry sky, listening to the sound of a campfire with my husband.
I live in constant fear that someone will steal my brand new bike!
I easily get new ideas.
Working with students, keeping order in the letterpress studio, doing some organizational things.
I also use screen-print, linocut and mono-print.
