BIOGRAPHY

Born in Rzeszów in 1971. Studied in Cracow at Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts, Departament of Sculpture in years 1992 – 1997. Received a summa cum laude degree at the workshop of prof. Józef Sękowski.
An assistant professor in the Department of Sculpture at Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts. Coordinates the drawing workshops for students of II – V years.
Received the Cultural City Network Graz scholarship (1998), the scholarship of Cracow City (1999) and the scholarship of Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland (2000).

Her work revolves around dark and eerie animal kingdom. It is an alegorie of human world and it’s problems.
Mariola uses scrap metal to build her creations; a chain becomes spine, nails turn into claws and talons.
She gives a new and thrilling life to the heavy and obsolete
objects rejected by the society…
