Collection: Janina Myronowa


Wroclaw, Poland

Janina Myronowa (Wroclaw, Poland) is a designer, painter, and ceramic sculptor who creates narrative through figurative forms and composed backdrops. Utilizing a specific and distorted representation of the body, each composition shows a different personality and personal story to collectively reference a graphic novel and arcing story. Imparting her own emotion through linework, Myronowa’s works are strategically charged with color to saturate and amplify their individual stories.

Myronowa received her MFA from the Department of Ceramic Art at Lviv National Academy of Fine Arts (Lviv, Ukraine) in 2012, an MFA in 2013 and PhD in 2019 from the Department of Ceramics and Glass at The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts and Design (Wroclaw, Poland). Continually developing her work and practice, Myronowa has attended numerous residencies including opportunities at the New Taipei Yingge Ceramics Mususm (New Taipei, Taiwan), Clayarch Gimhae Musem (Gimhae-si, Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea), Lefebvre and Fils (Paris, France), the Polish Sculpture Centre (Oronsko, Poland), and the International Ceramic Research Center (Guldagergaard, Denmark). During her time in academia and residencies, she has held the titles of head of ceramics studio at Instytut Dizajnu w Kielcach (Kielce, Poland) in 2014 and 2015, and assistant professor at Academy of Art and Design (Wroclaw, Poland).
