Małgosia Bela
I miss the creative exchange for which we used to have time at work.
Zoe Suen
Regardless of the geopolitics and all the prejudice that shapes how we think about China as a market, it’s important to understand that it is just people on the other side of the world.
Natalia Grabowska
To understand architecture, you need to enter and feel it, not just talk about it.
Zofia Jaworowska & Michał Sikorski
A crisis is the best moment to try to make the world a better place.
Natasha Pickowicz
Baking is my way of bringing people together – says Brooklyn-based pastry chef Natasha Pickowicz, whose old-school community bake sales raise money for nonprofits.
Magdalena Karpińska
I think a lot about the absurd nature of reality, and you can see traces of these ruminations in my work. There are days when the thought that the world is more and more absurd is terrifying, and there are days when it is reassuring.
Vava Dudu
Drawing is the best way to say what you want to say without all the “blah blah blah” – says Parisian polymorph artist Vava Dudu, who merges fashion with drawing, painting, and music.
Lesia Khomenko
To rethink what is happening, why is it happening in the 21st century, how this became the new normal. That’s how I see the role of an artist.
Rosh Mahtani
I started designing jewellery out of loneliness, to start a dialogue and to help other people feel less alone – says Alighieri founder Rosh Mahtani, who talks with us about her wax sculptures, living in London, and finding light in the dark.
Gunia Nowik
Buying a work of art is such an intimate transaction, it requires one-on-one contact between the piece and the viewer. You can’t convey those emotions through the internet – says Gunia Nowik, the founder of a new contemporary art space in Warsaw, the Gunia Nowik Gallery.
Agnieszka Grochowska
Mistakes are vital to art.
Lotta Nieminen
The quiet lets me hear my own thoughts.
Maria Karpińska
Books are a reliable antidote to stress related to the overwhelming situation around us.
Maria Jeglińska-Adamczewska
I dream that one day we’ll be able to outfit a house solely with Polish brands.
Ola Niepsuj
Sometimes I manage to convince a children’s book publisher to make the mayor of a town a woman instead of a man, or to have a boy pretending to cook instead of pretending to race cars.
Ania Jóźwiak & Stanisław Boniecki
In New York you always feel like everyone is doing something cooler than you.
