Each city 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 explains to My Modern Met. “I never try to paint realistic works of art that look like photos. I chose color palettes instead. I try to show the atmosphere and the climate of the place and emphasize the beauty of the cities and the buildings.
His art represents places across Europe, including Bologna, Malaga and Paris, to name a few. If some of these places are painted on site, others are made from photographic references. Wrońska even self-published a coloring book in 2020 titled Southern European cities, which explores some of the “most popular vacation destinations in Europe that are difficult to reach and fully explore due to COVID-19 lockdowns.”
