The artist captures the atmosphere of cities in colorful watercolors
Each town has its own unique personality, which is evident in the buildings that line the streets. Polish architect Maja Wrońska captures the spirit of different cities in Europe and beyond in her continuing series of vibrant watercolors.
Originally from Zyrardow, Poland, the artist trained as an architect at the Warsaw University of Technology. Subsequently, she combined her love and knowledge of buildings with her passion for painting. “As an architect, I find cities and buildings very inspiring,” Wrońska tells My Modern Met. “I never try to paint realistic artwork that looks like a photo. I chose color palettes instead. I try to show the mood and climate of the place and put the emphasis on the beauty of cities and buildings.
His art depicts locations across Europe, including Bologna, Malaga and Paris, to name a few. While some of these places are painted on location, others are made from photographic references. Wrońska even self-published a coloring book in 2020 titled Southern European Citieswhich explores some of “Europe’s most popular holiday destinations that are difficult to reach and fully explore due to COVID-19 lockdowns”.
