Pola (Apolonia) Dwurnik has been working mainly with oil painting, various drawing media, collage and Mail Art.

She has been also active as a self-publishing artist, editor and song writer.

In painting the artist tries to rediscover a new strength of expression in the confines of a figural representation,
in which she examines identity caught in the conflict between the inner emotional and the external image.

In drawings Dwurnik oscilates between simplistic cartoon style, live quick sketches and realistic, complex
compositions. She reflects on the contemporary reality and its social and private spheres.
Most of her narrative drawings tell true stories about artist's own life and the art world.
Pola Dwurnik has been famous for her acute irony and for tracing absurdity
and paradoxes of the contemporary art life and the hunger for fame.

Apart from art production, Pola Dwurnik has been experimenting with the art exhibition formula.
In 2007 she founded a miniature portable Apolonia Art Gallery, offering an alternative view of exhibition display,
based on the shift of scale and conceptual play with the rules of the art world.

In 2008 she lunched Message from Edie S. Mail Art Series - her most politically engaged art series.

Since 2012 is a member of BERLINERPOOL Arts Network and Mobile Archive in Berlin.

Her works are in collections of National Museum in Gdańsk, Museum of Contemporary Art MOCAK in Kraków,
Contemporary Museum Wrocław in Wrocław, POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw,
and in private collections in Poland, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Great Britain, Spain,
Portugal, France, Slovakia, Czech Republic, USA, Mexico, Japan and Australia.

Since 2015 the artist co-operates with Galerie Idea-Fixa in Basel.

Lives in Warsaw, Berlin and Basel.
