“Girl with the Dog” by Polish contemporary artist, Maciej Cieśla
This colourful artwork is a very characteristic work by Maciej Cieśla, a contemporary artist from Poland. As with most of his paintings, it is inspired by nature, folklore, and social subjects. The world he creates in his paintings contain characters borrowed from folklore and fantasy.
Cieśla on his inspiration for “Girl with the Dog”: “The dog character I use, is a typical symbol in my paintings. I like to connect it with women in more nostalgically or softer scenarios.”
This work is framed, and ready to hang.
