1st Place Bio: Gaya Lastovjak (1987, Cracow — Poland)

Contemporary figurative artist creating three-dimensional paintings with her own technique using paper-mache, canvas and oil paint. In her works, the author focuses on various aspects of human existence and all issues related to it. She’s been exploring different kinds of environment to gain introspection into man’s life. The paintings reveal a sculptural vision of form, they surprise with their diversity in terms of structure and message, focusing on showing the aspect of human existence. Gaya Lastovjak’s art defies all classifications and definitions, it is subtle and at the same time critical. https://www.instagram.com/gayalastovjak/
