Eliza Wiszniewska

b. 1986 in Chelm, Poland. Lives and works in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Nature is at the centre of the artistic practice of Eliza Wiszniewska, who is fascinated by the variety of plants, their shapes, colours and patterns. Most importantly , she is inspired by nature’s unapologetic desire to live and flourish. The artist’s love for the world of plants developed during her initial studies as a landscape architect, prior to her painting degree at the world-renowned Dusseldorf Academie in Germany.
In Wiszniewska’s canvases, nature acts as a healer, as a home, as a judge, inviting the viewer to surrender to an enchanting realm away from the goal-oriented contemporary life. Imagination, emotions and gut feeling are her primary guiding forces, while the artist also uses references from photographs and found images. For the creation of her paintings Wiszniewska uses a variety of materials such as coloured pencils, pastels, wax crayons, acrylic paints, gouache, charcoal and oil paints.
Eliza Wiszniewska holds a Master's degree in Engineering - Landscape Architecture from the KUL University in Lublin, Poland and a Master's degree in Painting from the Düsseldorf Academie in Germany where she was a student of professor Herbert Brandl.
In 2018 she was awarded with the first prize at the Art Battle Competition in Heimbach, Germany. Her work has been exhibited in 20 solo and group shows in Germany and Poland. Selected exhibitions include:  Group exhibition Kunstpunkte, Düsseldorf (2022); Solo exhibition, Raum Für Kunst, Düsseldorf (2021); Start Art Week, Group exhibition "Spectral" (2021); Group exhibition, Museum K21, Kunstsammlung Nordrhein - Westfalen, Düsseldorf (2020).
