ABOUT

Kasia Wiercinska is an artist specializing in the watercolor technique. Her passion for art bloomed in early childhood and has steadily grown over the years. Her work is characterized by the portrayal of captured memories, fleeting moods, and a deep love for colour transitions and light.

The artist pursued professional training in watercolour painting during her residency in New Zealand in years 2019 - 2020. Before that, she graduated from architectural studies, where she acquired a solid foundation in drawing, painting, and creative thinking, which became the basis for her further development.

She exhibited her artworks and gave tutoring to many art enthusiasts around the world, including Norway, New Zealand, Italy, Poland, England, USA, France and Vietnam.

Currently residing in Oslo, Norway, Kasia Wiercinska continues her artistic journey and actively contributes to the local artistic community. She is widely appreciated as a watercolour instructor, conducting workshops for both beginners and advanced artists. She is also a leader of Norway for international watercolour festival “Fabriano in Acquarello” in Italy, one of the admins of Urban Sketchers Oslo, and a founder of Akvarell Atelier - centre for watercolour art in Oslo.

The artist frequently draws inspiration from the surrounding landscapes, with a focus on capturing the atmosphere and mood, encapsulating ephemeral moments, memories, and dreams. Each artwork carries a unique story, memory, or dream. According to the artist, a painting is meant to represent the world that we remember or desire to remember, reflecting what we felt, heard, or experienced in a particular place and time.
