Olka Osadzińska is a young artist, art director and curator from Poland. She has worked on various national and international art projects. Her artistic experience spans across art, fashion and lifestyle as well as online through a collaboration with the influential magazines and websites for which she draws illustrations.
She designed two signature shoes for a global brand Reebok, with the third release planned for Spring/Summer 2015.
Her cover page illustration for Elle last year was the magazine’s first ever illustrated cover.
She has also helped stitch together advertising campaigns and advertorials for high-profile agencies, magazines and corporate clients.
She cooperated with brands such as Reebok, MCM, Mercedes Benz, Hugo Boss, Nike, Jägermeister, Max Factor, SABMiller and others. As well as with magazines such as Elle, Glamour, Commons&Sense, D la Repubblica and with Condé Nast titles.
Her works were displayed at solo as well as at group exhibitions and in the latest Gestalten book of fashion illustration: “The Beautiful. Illustrations for Fashion and Style”.
She has presented her works at MoMA in Warsaw, and took part in the Design for Freedom – Freedom in Design exhibition (Graphic Design in Poland 1981–2011) shown in Berlin, Tokyo and Warsaw.
She organised and curated one of the most successful art fairs in Warsaw the Art Yard Sale. The resounding success of the event led Olka Osadzińska, to be nominated for the 2010 Glamour Woman of the Year Award in the Creative in Business category.
The last two editions of the fairs attracted more than 22 000 visitors over the events weekends.
