Born in 1983 in Warsaw, Poland, Kasia Uminska obtained a degree in Art History in Poland and graduated with a Master in Advanced Studies in Art History at the University of Barcelona. After years of theoretical research on art, she decided to study Arts to combine the theoretical knowledge with her strong necessity of the artistic expression. Although she has been drawing and painting since childhood, she decided to dedicate herself professionally and exclusively to art quite recently and in 2016 she started to learn directly from renowned contemporary artists. In her works she uses graphite and charcoal as a main medium. She pursues a figurative realistic representation with emphasis on the quality of the technique, trying to capture all the subtleties of details and textures as well as the poetry of light and the emotional mood of the subjects. However, the realistic representation is refracted in a singular way through the imagination. There is a clear pretension to create images that are, at the same time, a realistic representation and a fantastic creation, a simulacrum, an illusion. 

"I think the artist's imagination fills his works with creativity and turns them into unique and mysterious creations, into a visual narrative poem." 

Currently, Kasia Uminska lives and works in Ibiza, Spain.
