Vincenzo Migliaro (Italian, 1858-1938)

 Pacha study of a Tiger
Der kleine Markt


"My name is Justyna Kopania. I am a painter. Art is my asylum, life, poetry, music, the best cigar, tasty strong tea, everything.My Art reflects the world I perceive with all mysenses; people I meet and love; nature I admire,and all the things that affect the way I am.The Man is my main inspiration and This Man is the principal topic of my project. I am focusing on Their psyche, attitudes, as well as Their appearance, manners and all the complex processes that take place both outside and inside the Man.I cannot imagine existing without my art, my paintings, my inspirations – it is, and will be, an intrinsic part of my life. I prefer oil painting on huge canvases. People from all around Europe findthe pieces of their selves in my works and are impressed with the sincerity and truth expressed through them.In my studio - work - I painta few, sometimes several hours a day. This is typical painting - easel, oil, structural. Paintings are "fleshy." Paint requires both painting, as well as brushes - and I do not regret the paint. Paintings are painted this way - creates a kind of reliefs. Paintings are painted in a sort of style, original ... - Inspired by certain passages of whatI see, and stay in my memory. Paitings are entirely painted by hand. I always try to give the climate the moment that stuck in my memory." - Justyna Kopania
