Product Description

The Manipulator (Study) Emma Grzonkowski

“The desire to create my own vision was sparked, and if I was struggling with something, I would frequently ask my dad to draw it for me. I would watch him intently and after pinning the drawing up on my bedroom wall I would copy it again and again until I got it right.

However the first masterpiece I ever created was on the backseat of his brand new car, a beautiful drawing of a flower in bright blue biro the need to create was just that strong.”

A figurative artist who draws on long periods of introspection, Emma Grzonkowski presents an intricate visualization of human emotion.

Emma found her artistic direction during her fine art and graphic design degree at Chester University. Here, she was given free reign to truly experiment and find her own style. Her desire to paint from the soul grew, and she found herself painting endlessly.

Emma Grzonkowski’s latest collection, Alter Egos includes Dynamite and sees her embrace four domininant personas that coexist within her psyche. Conceived and exaggerated from the darker and more vulnerable corners of her own personality, the characters embody violence and suffering whilst oozing a glamorous sexuality.

Taking inspiration from Batman’s Harley Quinn and the American comic book writer Frank Miller, Emma assumes the identities of The Hopeless Romantic, The Warrior, The Destructor and The Manipulator. By embracing each of her identities, Emma Grzonkowski hopes to engage viewers with art that is both relatable and provocative.

She explains: “In a world where ‘perfection’ is prized, I have shown something raw and real. I hope people can relate to these triumphs and tribulations and feel empowered. I want to show that it is okay to have scars and wounds…they are reminders of the battles we’ve all fought and won.” and also “My work is an evolving journey. Each painting represents feelings and states of being.”
