CREATIVE SPOTLIGHT // NYC ARTIST HANNA BARCZYK
If you read our last post about the New York Denim Days Festival, you’re probably curious to know more about Hanna Barczyk, the artist behind our amazing denim mural. Well lucky for you, we’ve got the scoop on how this German-born beauty became one of NYC’s most sought-after illustrators.
Barczyk graduated from Ontario College of Art and Design with a bachelor of Design. Dividing her time between Ontario and New York, she’s made a name for herself in the art world through her unique and conceptual illustrations. With inspiration stemming from her family’s Hungarian traditions, vintage Polish film posters, love, music and dance, her work is truly one of a kind, which is what makes it so memorable. From pen and ink to acrylic paint, woodblock to digital designs, there’s nothing she can’t do.
Barczyk’s art has been featured in major publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal. Described as bold and expressionistic, it is right in line with our artistic vision for the For Us collection, making her the perfect artist to represent us at Denim Days. Her live denim mural, which was created throughout the course of the two-day event, was a huge hit among the festivalgoers, and was auctioned off to one lucky winner at the end of the event.
