About me

My profession and passion is making films in any form. I graduated directing at the Gdynia Film School, the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk on the faculty of painting. I participated in the Studio Rehearsal at the Wajda School. For a year I have been working for Fox International Channels Poland and my films participated in festivals such as the International Film Festival in Gdynia or Camerimage.

In my realizations I combine my passion for experimentation form, color and composition so that the film apart from telling the story is interesting and  visually original.

Marta Grabicka was born on 8 February 1987 in Gdynia. A visual artist dealing with digital collage and short forms of films. She graduated painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk and directing at the Gdynia Film School. She also participated in the Rehearsal Studio at the Wajda Master School.Collages of Marta Grabicka are thoroughly modern, in which presented materialistic and consumptive civilization is reflected as in a mirror, or – referring to the form of work -in a broken mirror. On the basis of the pictures, trends, absurdities and emotions developed by globalization, the artist raises questions about life and human functioning in the modern world. Symbols used by her are deeply rooted in the west, international community, hence their universal value and pertinent comment to the reality are observed. Marta Grabicka uses irony as a main strategy to fight against modernity. The artist ridicules consumerist reality of socially established norms because of either her fear or the contempt. Marta Grabicka defended a diploma in the multimedia studio with Adam Witkowski Phd, annex in painting with Professor Henry Cześnik. She is a double scholar of the Marshal of Pomerania for creators of culture (2011, 2013).
