Ewa wears her skin like a canvas, and remains a mysterious fascination to those in the art world and general public too.

She uses performance and instagram to further question the chameleon nature of character, the pretence in person and the theatre of the self. The contrast between her flamboyant self presentation and visceral nudes depicted in her compositions create a clash of identities.It is this that the artist claims is all part of the art !

The conflict between the image and the self is something Ewa has developed on and beyond her canvases and honed over several years, first emerging on the London underground scene and now at an international level. In 2016, E W A unveiled her ‘LIVING PAINTING’ performances at Frieze NY, Frieze London, exhibitions in Brussels and Berlin and her digital campaign across London billboards both over ground and underground .
