Pola Dwurnik (b. 1979) is visual artist who works with oil painting, various forms of drawing, collage and mail art.
She has been also active as a self-publishing artist, editor and song writer.

In painting the artist tries to rediscover a new strength of expression in the confines of a figural representation, in which she examines identity caught in the conflict between the inner emotional and the external image.

In drawings Dwurnik oscilates between simplistic cartoon style, live quick sketches and realistic, complex compositions. She reflects on the contemporary reality and its social and private spheres. Most of her narrative drawings tell true stories about artist’s own life and the art world.

Pola Dwurnik has been famous for her acute irony and for tracing absurdity
and paradoxes of the contemporary art life and the hunger for fame.

Pola Dwurnik’s paintings and drawings have been shown at group and solo exhibitions, including at the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw, Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, Centre of Polish Sculpture in Orońsko, MOCAK Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Trafostacja Sztuki in Szczecin, BWA galleries in Tarnów, Kalisz, Jelenia Góra, Zielona Góra and Nowy Sącz, Arsenal Gallery in Białystok, HAU2 in Berlin, MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome, Krasnoye Znamya Cultural Centre in St. Petersburg, and many others.

Pola Dwurnik’s works are in the collections of the National Museum in Gdańsk, MOCAK Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Wrocław Contemporary Museum in Wrocław, POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw and in private collections around the world.
