KATA KUKLA is a painter and a multidisciplinary artist born in Poland, currently living and working in Dublin. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland where she majored in painting and she created an exhibition of serigraphy printing. Kata’s artistic works exemplify contemporary surrealistic explorations of biological organisms, botany and all areas of human existence, combining seemingly mismatched elements and symbols in the creation of her canvases.
Using retrospective and digressive techniques she accumulates information from her personal experiences to compose a map of irregularly connected thoughts, as well as the effects of physical pains, mental torment and suffering on these thoughts. In her work, she also uses multimedia, print and creates installations which allow her to commentate on the current state and anxieties of the global affairs.
