Katarzyna Bulka-Matlacz

Katarzyna Bulka-Matlacz was born in Warsaw. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts (ASP) in Warsaw, the Faculty of Sculpture in 1991. She’s the author of statuettes for such companies as TVN, Puls Biznesu, AXA, AIG, Kraft Foods, BRE Bank, Credit Suisse, PAN, Forbes. 

She receives invitations for exhibitions worldwide. Her works can be found in private collections same as in galleries in Poland, France, Germany, Netherlands and Great Britain. 

In 1999 she received a scholarship from the Ministry of Culture and Art.

In November 2013 she received the first prize at "Salon d'Automne - Coubron" - Paris for sculpture "Dreaming a Dream of Venice".

The sculptures by Katarzyna Bulka-Matlacz amazingly combine the elements of surrealism, grotesque and fairy tale, which are used to show the complexity of human condition, man's ambitions and limitations, his advantages, and drawbacks.

Katarzyna uses adequate thought's abbreviations to enclose a complete tale, carrying a deep philosophical and humanistic message, in a limited space.

Katarzyna uses the lost wax casting, a technique known since ancient times. This method of making artistic molds requires the sculptor's huge artistry and patience. Each of the artist's sculptures is a unique and inimitable creation.

The works reflect her unusual precision and respect for the recipients.

The extraordinary relationship she is able to establish with the audience results in the excellent acceptance and recognition of her works of art all over the world.
