HELLO, I’M ELA GĄDEK, ARTIST, ILUSTRATOR AND GRAPHIC DESIGNER,
CURRENTLY BASED IN KRAKÓW, POLAND.
I try to find time for creative moments in my work and life. I am looking for diversity, naturalness, freedom, willingness to experiment and have fun.
I interpret according to these values. I also like to realize collectove projects.
Together with my twin sister, I am working on „Diversity in Unity“, a project about twin identity, which was implemented of the Creative Scholarship of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.
In 2009 I co-created the Kuratorki artistic group, in which I am actively involved.
