There's a fierce femininity and freedom of spirit etched into the surface of Hannah Adamaszek's bohemian portraits. This down-to-earth artist gains inspiration for her artworks by immersing herself in the landscape, and practicing meditation and yoga. It's no wonder her urban portraits are so popular, and her social following so vast, when they are bang on trend. Mindfulness is the movement of the minute, and we all know just how beneficial it is to be surrounded by artwork - both for the Feng Shui of a space and our own wellbeing, so imagine what it's like to create it every day!
The third of our #ModernMarketers, we recently quizzed the artist to find out about what she's working on now, and how she promotes her work online.
Tell me about the work that you make.
The works I make intend to immerse you in serenity, to captivate and draw you into the ether. I want to bring the beauty of our souls to life, a female muse at harmony with herself and her surroundings.
What’s the best response you’ve ever had to an artwork?
I was once at an art fair in Germany and one of the people visiting knew my work well and had come to see it with her partner. They decided to buy one of the framed prints and she was so excited she practically danced around the fair. It was an amazing feeling knowing that my work had made someone that happy.
What’s your social media medium of choice? Who do you follow?
Instagram is one of my favourite social media platforms (@HannahAdamaszek), it’s very visual and suits me as a person. There are so many accounts that I draw inspiration from, one of my favourites is @sugarshack_styling_co.
Do you like being able to share your work in this way? What are your top tips for a great profile?
I love being able to show my work on social media, espcially Twitter (@hannahadamaszek), it’s a way to reach people everywhere in the world, I wouldn't be able to do that in gallery shows. I like to see progress pictures as well as the finished pieces in situ, it’s great to find out about the person behind the work too.
What or where is your go to for inspiration?
I like to either go for a run or do some yoga to clear my mind before I start the day, I find a lot of inspiration in both. On social media I find so much inspiration on Pinterest. There’s such an amazing selection of images to draw from.
Where’s your favourite place to travel to?
I love the mountains, I'm happy wherever they are. I lived in Switzerland for a while and found the environment such a beautiful and inspiring place to be.
What do you love most about art & making art? What do you hate most about it?
I love the problem solving, putting paint on, covering areas and building something with soul. It can be all consuming, taking you into another place or state of mind. I hate that I don't get as much time as I'd like to paint, because being an artist is far more than just sitting down and doing what you love.
Where do you work? What’s in your studio?
I have a studio in the spare room at home, it’s full of spray paint, acrylics and, new for me, oils. I've just started to hang work by other artists on the walls who manage to inspire me every day.
What gets you out of bed in the morning? What puts you to sleep?
I'm a morning person, a nice cup of coffee is the perfect kick start for me.
If you could have your artwork in any museum, collection, or building in the world, where would it be?
I would love to have the chance to travel more with my work, either painting a huge mural outside or showing work where it can help bring a sense of calm to the place.
