Here's a rough translation via Google translator in English:
BWL: Kama Arts - a restless spirit. This time you
travelled to Australia and New Zealand. Thanks to this trip
new graphics were created for #TwoThumbsWildlife.
Kamila Wojciechowicz-Krauze: That's right, I traveled for a month and a half to
Australia and New Zealand. The graphics were dedicated to the animals, that have suffered during recent Australian fires. I witnessed the smoke rising over Sydney. I am also
constantly up to date with the situation in Australia. As a result of fires more than a billion animals died there, so I decided to donate 50 % of profits from the sale of the latest graphics to help endangered animals. In January I've sent funds to RSPCA, in February donated them to the Two Thumbs foundation Wildlife Trust. It is a koala asylum that has suffered
much because of the disaster.
BWL: You also visited Art Next Expo in Hong Kong? How was it?
KWK: The Art Next Expo was great. It is an international art fair presenting art
creators mainly from Asia, but also from other countries in the world. This year, however, it took place in specific due to the political situation.
There were multiple demonstrations taking place there for several months. I managed to avoid riots and reached the hotel safely on foot the day the demonstrators passed a short distance from the exhibition center, and the metro station was barricaded.
The organizers of the Expo expressed gratitude towards all the international artists for visiting at this difficult time.
BWL: Last year brought you a lot of challenges new adventures, more
awards. Among them it is worth mentioning the Award of Merit from the
3x3 Magazine of Contemporary Illustration.
KWK: I am very happy that my illustrations for "The Wind in the Willows" have been recognized by judges from the prestigious Society of Illustrators in New York. Last time my work was printed in their annual catalogue in 2015:
I appeared then as New Talent. Now my work has appeared in the Professional Show category. I believe that this will encourage Polish publishing houses to establish a professional cooperation with me.
BWL: I admit that sometimes it's hard to look away from
your works - they are amazing, mysterious, full of mystery,
multidimensional and ambiguous. Your abstractions can't
to get bored I hope that a new collection is being created ...
KWK: Of course! It will be a series inspired by my travels,
bird's-eye views and geological structures. During my trip around Central Australia, they inspired me the structure of orange stone and red sand.
In New Zealand I was amazed by hot springs in Rotorua and glaciers in the Southern Alps, unfortunately shrinking at a terrifying pace.
BWL: Where can we meet you in the near future?
KWK: I invite you in May for the 11th Art Fresh Festival in Warsaw.
