Martyna, born in 1991, is a visual artist from Poland. Currently mostly focus on painting and installation medium, creating side specific situations. At the beginning of her artistic practise she works mainly in the video medium. In her works, she utilizes the found footage technique by drawing on GIFs found on the web. Each film is characterized by an atypical mood, created through the use of dynamic editing, which in turn is combined with a nostalgic palette of colors and melancholic music. The context of these films is also important – the photographic plates used by Martyna are universal in character, which ensures a common understanding. She plays with elements of pop-cultural iconography. In this way, her works are decoded on a variety of different levels and become open to interpretation based on the individual experiences of the viewers. At present she has transferred her video experience to another medium, developing new ways of working. She lives and works in Cracow.
