I have an utmost pleasure to invite you all to my next exhibition with our quirky bunch of artists. We’ll be showing our 2 and 3D work in Espacio Gallery in Shoreditch starting on the 30th of August.
The private view is on the 1st September so there will be wine and nibbles (just in case art is not convincing enough). Hope to see all you faces there.
The show is a part of Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays so it will be a late night.
Thank you all for joining me at the private view and on other days at Espacio Gallery. It’s been a lot of fun.
Some pictures form the show below.
In beginning of April I will be taking part in group exhibition “In Translation”. All 10 artists exhibiting are Members of Espacio Gallery that is based in Shoreditch (London).
Everyone is welcome to attend private view on the 7th April 6-9 pm. Please come and say ‘hello’.
The exhibition will last 6 days so if you’re unable to join us on the 7th feel free to pop in any time between 5-10 April during opening hours:
Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat 1-7pm, Thur 4-9pm, Sun 1-5pm
In Translation is about the way that we create new languages, in order to interpret and convey our responses to the world. Art can be a way of making sense of our environment and of lived experience. It is as if the raw material of life needs to be translated - given a kind or order, or meaning, in order to make it liveable. This is Culture, and this is why art is at the root of culture. It offers us a way of looking, understanding and being in the world.
Beyond this, translation is a way of reaching out. Translations bring people together. They put us on the same page. Meaning is made meaningful when it is acknowledged by others. Through translations in art, our visions become powerful. They can bring about change.
In Translation brings together a group of artists from around the world. Whether they are inspired by their environments, by myths and legends, or by ideas and emotions, each artist’s work is underpinned by the need to translate experience into something visual and share-able. We are offered new perspectives, or understandings, and we are invited to translate their translations for ourselves.

Last month I was asked to give an interview to an online Art magazine Art Habens. I was given 16 pages to display ma latest works and share some of the views and thoughts on a chat with Josh Ryder – one of the curators.

As from a couple of days I have been featured on Rise Art Online gallery.
Here is an endorsement from Kathryn Roberts.
Curator Kathryn Roberts says:
“Poraj uses a contemporary pallet and minimalist shapes to create the illusion of collage within her paintings thereby manipulating the viewer’s perspective of abstract concepts or subjects.”

Some time ago I added my works on Saatchi website. Jut recently my work has been chosen for Saatchi Art Collection. The artwork is one of the most recent paintings I have made. It was the first when I started to incorporate full colour backgrounds to my compositions. Here is the link to the collection: http://www.saatchiart.com/art-collection/Painting-Collage-Printmaking/Originals-for-1000-or-Less/667232/89205/view
Since today I am a featured artist on works.io
The work chosen for that was Afar 5 and I am really excited, because I think their gallery shows some absolutely interesting works.
