Oliwia is a Polish born illustrator based in Brighton. She works primarily in gouache and occasionally explores the intricacies of paper cutting. Her projects draw influence from Polish folklore and her position as an immigrant in Brexit Britain. Her paintings often explore serious subjects veiled by a sea of beautifully coloured plants and geometric structures.
Her love for illustration is almost matched by her love for pickles- especially gherkins.
