Agnieszka Kotarska


Agnieszka Kotarska

Born in 1984 in a small town in Poland, surrounded by forests and rivers. She grew up in the environment of nature, showing an interest in art from an early age.

After graduating in Spanish Philology in Łódź, she decides to move to Spain (first to Barcelona, ​​and then to Alicante, where she currently lives and works).

Although self-taught, in recent years she has studied with renowned contemporary artists, incl. Emanuele Dascanio, whom she considers the Master who has marked her current artistic technique, hyperrealism in which graphite and charcoal have become her main medium.

Kotarska has always embraced the technical qualities of figurative realism, creating works that are a blend of fantasy, symbolism, and mystery.

Metaphysics, the transcendental world and spirituality are the themes that have caught her attention since she was a child and that can be seen reflected in her works of art.

Introspection and meditation are part of her daily life. The constant search for new knowledge and the passion for traveling made her make countless trips to different continents.

Her thirst for self-knowledge prompted her to study Higher Yoga Teacher Training for 3 years at a metaphysical school. She has participated in spiritual retreats in several asian countries, where pencil and paper have always been her faithful companions.

“Knowing so many cultures helped me understand that despite human diversity, we all have something in common: it is our true inner nature.

I believe that human beings should discover their infinite potential to connect with their wonderful inner world and understand that despite external differences, deep down we are all one."


Agnieszka Kotarska has participated in numerous national and international competitions and exhibitions.
