About the artist
Maja Zagórska employs signs and symbols such as quotes, household items and self-portraits in order to comment on the joys and struggles of living in modern society. In her work she illustrates her personal highs, lows, and the attempts she makes to balance this private narrative. Through vivid drawings she shows the sometimes humorous, sometimes embarrassing, trivial, obsessive, or sentimental aspects of daily life. The details in her work are recognizable and often humoristic, paired with areas of color she emphasizes objects or situations we can all relate to.
