Joanna Grochocka

Born and raised in Sopot, Joanna spent most of her childhood drawing and reading, which led her to the early conclusion that in the future she would make a living from writing and illustrating books. To some extent, she was right: she creates magazine and book illustrations, as well as posters, murals and art installations. She draws and paints, she takes photographs, she makes collages and collects pretty clippings. Joanna holds a degree in Philosophy from the University of Gdańsk. She also studied Graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts, but quickly decided not to suffer through a formal art education, and quit with no regrets after two years. She used to work within the Independent Media Workshop collective Obin.org in the Artists’ Colony, located in Gdańsk Shipyard. There Joanna experienced one of the most inspiring and absurd periods of her life, learning how to climb shipyard cranes and create art that’s relevant only while it’s being created. She enjoys pretty little things, anecdotes from the lives of Dadaists, dialogues from Lewis Carroll’s books, life advice from Hakim Bey, glitter, Franciszka Themerson’s drawings, and Alejandro Jodorowsky’s teachings.
