Alicja Strzyzynska was born in Poland. In Warsaw, she completed her Masters of Arts Degree in Product Design and Visual Communication at Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. After graduation, she worked in Tokyo and then in Amsterdam, where she has now her own studio.
The proposed sculptures are an effort to engage in a conversation between the spirit of fine art and the purpose of design to create intimate art pieces. She is searching for the experience of intimacy – a metaphisical echange between human and objects.
The idea was born after deciding to reconnect with her roots and her grandfather – a sculptor artist. Learning to sculpt and being a designer inspired her to combine the two principles. Experimenting with the functionality of sculpture and the meaning of furniture.
