Biography[edit]

Ziaja was educated in the faculty of painting and graphic arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, and graduated with an honours degree in 1979.

Her unique vision of contemporary art comes from her love of Italian art from Trecento to Cinquecento,from Masaccio to Vittore Carpaccio fused with her Polish heritage and paintings of Zygmunt Waliszewski and Eugeniusz Zak. Her concepts are an expression of poetry and personal contemplation, from the melancholic to sometimes bitter reflection. Ziaja's paintings present a psychological abstract of human fate; a depiction of multifaceted personalities inexorable linked in everyday complexities, portraying the individualism of the world.

Ziaja lives in Warsaw Poland and Modena Italy.[1]
