Artist Re-Imagines Iconic Masterpieces as Body Art


“When painting, I look for life in its various manifestations,” this is what Agnieszka Nienartowicz from Poland believes in.

The talented artist studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and in 2016, she earned a Master of Fine Arts at the painting studio led by Prof. Maciej Świeszewski. She was awarded several scholarships and various awards and recognition.

Recently, she re-imagines iconic masterpieces as tattoos of a person. Her paintings are so realistic, they look like photographs. She uses techniques, close to hyperrealism, giving form to a shapeless mass of paint.

“The works I choose, though being mere objects, seem alive to me. By appropriative fragments of these works, transferring the inseparable thoughts to my own canvas. At the same time, placing them in a completely new context, I deprive them of an artifact. This ambiguity is what I love,” she wrote on her website.
