Sylwia Lapczyk – Cieślar: How we don’t know her

Text by: Sylwia Lapczyk – Cieślar

Painting, printmaking, sculpture

My passion is painting, printmaking and sculpture. In other words, art in the broadest sense of the word. Yes, I’m not afraid to use that phrasing when I write about my interests.

Ever since I began to consciously perceive the world, I have been driven by the idea of finding direction in the visual arts.

Therefore, I enrolled at the State Secondary School of Fine Arts in Bielsko-Biała at the Faculty of Artistic Screen Printing. The next step was to open my own advertising agency, which subsequently turned into a small printery. Here I improved my skills in graphic processes, which are crucial for the subsequent use of printing technologies. The wide range of experience meant that, after the aforementioned business closed, I decided to take a job in “my” FINIDR printing house, so that I could continue to have the opportunity to develop in this field.

Today I have the privilege of being able to privately develop my creative passions in the recently opened KREDENS – Pracownia Nastroju studio in Skoczów, in addition to working with a fantastic team that I lead and a team of managers who give me a lot of valuable advice.

One of my areas of interest is Zero Waste – something from nothing. Impossible? Yes, it is.

Interesting, seemingly unnecessary things are not indifferent to me. They give me inspiration to create jewellery, decorations or even lamps. But I don’t stop there. I paint paintings and portraits, which have long been very popular.

Even though I’m 50 years old, I still have childlike joie de vivre that allows me to dream. To dream of a solo exhibition of work where, in an age of such widespread artificial intelligence, handmade objects will continue to have a unique charm and timeless value.

One final thing I would like to add – every day it is a great pleasure for me to work in our company and therefore to enjoy the time we spend together.

So, see you on the next shift.
