A few words about MSWORKZ
My name is Marta Szmyd

I’m graphic designer and artist based in Wroclaw / Poland. I was born in 1989. In 2014 I graduated with Master’s Degree in Graphic Design and Multimedia Graphics from Wroclaw’s Academy of Fine Arts. I ended as well postgraduate studies in Post-production of Film and Television. I’m focused on gesture and expression, trying to explore the uniqueness legacy of Polish Poster School. Living in paradoxical polish reality pushes me to create distinctive, high-colored and contrastive art, which brings me a lot of fresh touch to my anyways jocund existence. I’m still looking for a way to express myself. I create posters, paintings and video-art.
