Polish artist Justyna Anna Kopania has been named Artist Become’s July Artist of the Month. Based in Warszawa, Poland, Kopania has been painting for more than a decade. She is one of more than 500 international artists featured on Artist Become.
Kopania specializes in oil painting and covers a wide variety of genres, from landscapes and cityscapes to portraits and still life pieces. Kopania describes her inspiration as the world that surrounds her, “I try to connect and be able to capture the image of time that passes so quickly.”
Kopania continues, “Perhaps the world that surrounds us is really quite different than we perceive it to be. Perhaps in every drop of rain, each grain of sand, and every snowflake there are millions of colors that you can see, if you look for them…this is the unique perspective I look for in my paintings.”
Kopania’s work has been exhibited in galleries throughout Poland and Europe. Since joining Artist Become her work has garnered a lot of attention, a fan of her work exclaimed on the online art community’s Twitter page, “Looked at the work of Justyna and I think that it is in a class of its own. Really remarkable work.”
