Julia Curyło is a graduate of Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts (2009, Leon Tarasiewicz studio). She presents unique trends on Polish modern art scene. Julia raises difficult issues related to religion, Polish national and historical identity, and is not afraid of taboos. The roots of her work can be found in surrealism and neo-pop, while formal inspiration comes from the works of Jeff Koons.
Curyło’s paintings and installations were presented - among others - in Galeria Szara in Cracow, Galeria Sztuki Wozownia in Toruń or Galeria Sztuki in Legnica.
