about

KLAUDIA NIWA

I am a visual artist as well as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer working in a variety of artistic media.
Humour and playfulness are underlying themes throughout my practice as an artist and storyteller.
While either focusing on children or adult audience, my art often explores the narrative potential of images
and the associative power of language within the boundaries of the work of art.
