Malgosia Stepnik

Lives and Works in The Cotswolds, UK

In 1999 Stepnik left Sociology studies at University of Wroclaw in Poland and emigrated to London (UK) to pursue her art studies. After obtaining a Diploma in Modern and Contemporary Art Studies from Christies Education in 2003, she then went on to pursue the Foundation Course at Chelsea College of Art & Design. In 2008 she was awarded a BA First Class (Hon) in Painting from City and Guilds London College of Art.

In her work Stepnik explores the inevitability of interconnectedness and its implications in the context of  the relatedness and its impact on Humanity. Her artworks express the need for connection in the more and more polarised world. In order to project that experience onto the viewer Stepnik often uses the circle as a symbol, which performs as a visual conduit for axis mundi – the interconnection of humanity. The Artist insistently tries to convey the importance of the preservation of the symbiosis between the natural and the human worlds. 

Since 2013, Malgosia has become increasingly involved in her art practice in supporting the Women Movement and the urgency and need for the dialog, representation and support of women from around the Globe.

She partners with artists and organisations to support women, sharing her experience as a woman, artist and an emigrant.
