Meet three amazing Polish women and Culture Creators
BASIA GIEWONT - Music is a universal language that transcends barriers and connects people on an emotional level. It has the power to evoke a wide range of emotions, express individual and collective experiences, and foster a sense of community. In case you haven’t had a pleasure yet, meet Basia Giewont, our Musical Ambassador in Barcelona. She is a Culture Creator who profoundly identifies with her roots in Zakopane, the Malopolska Region, and the Polish Mountains.
Basia`s musical works, presented on stages all over Poland, combine elements of folk with electronic sound and alternative pop. She draws inspiration not only from the Podhale culture but also from the richness of folk art of Mazovia and Silesia. Basia breaks the mould by creating a one-of-a-kind blend of pop music and discernible Polish folk culture roots. The artist immerses herself in the stories and instrumentations of the past, drawing from the texts of old songs, which are a constant inspiration for her. The result of her work is unique songs that combine modernity and the soul of tradition.
ZOFIA STRYJENSKA - The vibrant graphics on our card`s cover in Barcelona were crafted by AI, drawing inspiration from the works of Zofia Stryjeńska (1891—1976), a distinguished Polish Art Deco painter, graphic artist, illustrator, set designer, and fabric, poster, and toy designer associated with Warsaw and Zakopane.
Zofia Stryjeńska received four Grand Prix awards at the 1925 International Exhibition of Decorative Art in Paris for architectural decoration, poster, fabric, and book illustration, along with two honorary diplomas. Her uniquely simplified forms radiate a joyful spirit, combining the affirmation of life entrenched in Polish tradition with the natural rhythm.
Beyond her accolades, Zofia Stryjeńska was a trailblazer in promoting Polish folklore through her art. She had a profound passion for showcasing the richness of Polish culture and tradition. Her artistic vision often drew inspiration from folk motifs, religious themes, and historical events, reflecting a deep admiration for Poland’s heritage. Stryjeńska’s dedication to preserving and revitalizing folk artistry contributed significantly to the cultural renaissance in Poland during the early 20th century. Her meticulous attention to detail and vibrant compositions not only captured the essence of tradition but also revitalized and popularized these cultural elements among a broader audience, both within Poland and internationally. Her legacy continues to resonate within the realms of Polish art, influencing generations of artists and fostering a renewed appreciation for the country’s cultural heritage.
