ART / PAINTING & ILLUSTRATION

Magdalena Kapinos’ expressionistic digital paintings

Polish artist and designer Magdalena Kapinos works with several different processes and techniques – her digital paintings are a juxtaposition of surreal and abstract forms.

What seem to be watercolored drawings are actually a conglomeration of several different materials, styles and mediums. The artist uses illustration, digital graphics, collage, and painting to complete many of her pieces.

I think working within different areas of art helps in many ways. One can apply experience gained for example in painting and translate it to poster design. Back and forth.The thing is illustration gives me more freedom, I do it to express myself whereas design projects are usually commissioned and I have very strict brief to follow. Not that I’m complaining though! It’s just totally different way of working. Both activities are equally rewarding.

Working primarily with digital tools, Magdalena renders figures and abstract elements in a loose, expressionistic style that is interspersed with tightly-controlled, illustrative elements. Her compositions are well structured and balanced while her use of texture, random patterns and pastel colors accentuate the abstract characteristics of her work. She is interested in portraying subjects in a timeless and fantastical space, one that is full of color, and all kinds of odd, abstract shapes and lines.
