MALARKA

Malarka (‘Paintress’) is my artistic alias & atelier dedicated to creating images for places and people. It started of as a ‘forget-me-not’/’want-to-give-something-in-return’ street art project during one holiday trip. I painted a set of ceramic tiles and fixed them on walls, so they would correspond with the surroundings. With time, all the places from my travels became an inspiration for new works. In each painting I play with shapes of iconic monuments, sights and colors or refer to the historical background. The cities in which Malarka’s artworks can be found today are Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Lisbon, Warsaw, Riga and many more…

The idea of embedding dedicated artwork in the public space became a way to leave the studio, express myself and connect with the world. Today the whole experience is an inseparable part of my travels and the project is growing with every visit.
