My name is Ewa Zwolińska. I am a graduate of the Sculpture Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and a scholarship holder of the Accademia di Belle Arti in Carrara, Italy. Artistic education and two years spent in beautiful Italy had a huge impact on my taste, way of thinking and creating. From the very beginning, my work has been guided by the idea of PAINTINGS TO WEAR, which I want to introduce to everyday life.
Since 2010, I have been running my own brand, EWA ZWOLIŃSKA, in which I create collections of clothing for women, fabric patterns and hand-drawn graphics for printing. My flagship MINEFY series with characteristic watercolor face prints has already become a symbol collection. It is sold successfully in Europe, the USA and the Middle East. I had the pleasure to present both MINEFY and other collections with success at many international fairs, including at The Ethical Fashion Show, Show & Order and The Gallery in Berlin, Modepalast in Vienna, CIFF in Copenhagen.
My brand's overarching values are sustainable, ethical production and awareness of our planet. I want the clothes and accessories I produce to give a sense of uniqueness and commitment, which is why I use certified materials. Currently, I am creating a collection of scarves, scarves and a kimono made of ecological Ahimsa silk. Its ethical production does not harm silkworms. I import it from India directly from the creator of this innovative method, so I am sure that I am using the original raw material.
My wearable silk paintings are unique and inimitable. Each of them is a separate story about the beauty of the world, which I perceive naturally through the forms, colors and inspirations of plants, landscapes and architecture. Painting on silk is a long process that requires time and patience. Many years of work and numerous experiments allowed me to develop my own painting techniques using water-based paints and natural pigments. I always start my work with sketches on paper in ink and watercolors - these are my favorite media.
I create my own collections, for which I invite you to visit the online store. I also work on individual orders and design patterns for companies and designers.
