Art Wednesday: Where were you born and where did you grow up?
MA: I was born in Czestochowa, Poland, where I also grew up. Czestochowa is the city famous for Catholic Pilgrims.
AW: Where and what did you study?
MA: I moved to London to study Illustration at the University of Westminster. Before that I was attending an Art School in Poland, which was a 6 year program that offered me a wide range of courses, so I specialised in Graphic Design and Painting.
AW: What was your route in? Do you have anyone creative in your family?
MA: There’s no one that I know of that was an artist. Probably the most artistic gene comes from my mother, she loved to paint horses when she was a younger, but her parents forced her to study medicine, and sadly she never went back to painting.
AW: Tell us a bit about your work. How you make it? What is the process you go through from idea to finished piece?
MA: My thoughts are quite chaotic and I mix reality with dreams. I usually start with mapping my ideas and putting them into diagrams. After sketching and mapping, I start to see a story. This is when the ideas happen. I sketch a lot, and collage fragments of pieces together that inspire me. It might be a certain type of mouth, a text from a book, a line from TV Series (usually HBO GIRLS ), a colour or a pose. My work is like a puzzle, and later I decide on a final image and attempt to finalise it, sometimes unsuccessfully, sometimes successfully.
AW: What inspires you?
MA: Old movies by Fellini, old Polish folk tales, and visually – the School of Polish Poster, Catholic Iconography, dreams and memories, nightmares, people around me, music, sadness, and lust in the general sense, Egon Schiele, Basquiat, Francis Bacon and many others."

Mad Girls Love Songs Exhibition takes place at 90 Old Street, rather then presenting the works inside the gallery, works are exhibited outdoor,behind the glass, as a window displays.
Such a open presentation offers a purer way for collectors and art fans to view the art than a traditional gallery setting.
Mad Girls Love Songs
Ongoing series of painting and drawings titled Mad Girls Love Songs is mainly inspired by being a girl, nostalgia, adolescence, teenage lust and anxiety.
In this series I’m trying to capture various states of being absent in present, between time and space, filled with constant unsatisfaction, longing, dreaming and wanting.
Capturing the world as seen through a lustful and sensitive Teenage gaze with over exaggerated and dramatic visions of mostly imagined memories.
