CRAZY, SEXY, COOL
Her artistic style and subject matter is non-repetitive, however, it is consistent and sexy. She freely uses inspirations, words and symbols that are subconsciously rooted in the eye of the viewer through culture. She is the master of color and sublime technical expression. Justyna’s work is uniquely self-referential and emotionally honest.
The artist considers Western culture, consumption, and capitalism, as well as other issues that affect the state of the world, through the lens of contemporary Bay Area life. Glamour and humor find a place in her often politically charged works that ask us to question our values and our place on the world stage. Her paintings are cheeky, trendy cool and popping with clever and lively unexpected colors. Kisielewicz’s paintings are filled with references to modern pop culture and inspired by the tradition of American and European aesthetics. She has been celebrated by international fashion and lifestyle magazines, as the “pop culture obsessed” “rebellious artist from Poland'' and as the “princess of pop culture”.
