NUA Illustration Graduate Alicja Jarzynska

Alicja Jarzynska is a recent Illustration graduate from the Norwich University of the Arts.


‘Choosing to study at Norwich University of Arts was one of the best decisions I have ever made and has changed countless aspects of my life. I gained and developed various skills and valuable knowledge. I grew into a confident artist, an Illustrator; open to all of the areas that Illustration has to offer.

My work is very diverse. I enjoy using a variety of media and exploring various subjects and themes. From making collages that relate to Nature and Wildlife to tackling more serious subjects such as ‘Missing People’, the project that I presented during my Degree Show Exhibition. That particular project was unlike anything I have ever done before. I chose to do a brief on ‘Missing People’, because I find that it is a massive problem that the society is struggling with in 21st century; however I have realized that a lot of people are unaware of how many people go missing around the world and in the UK each year. The aim of my project was to open eyes and make people more conscious and informed about the problem of people disappearing.’


‘Inspiration for my projects generally comes from everything that is around me. Little things influence me. Usually the main source of inspiration for me comes from everyday life, books, watching documentaries, different artists and people that I interact with, on everyday basis.

Currently, I am working on a few independent commissions such as designing a CD cover within the ‘Hip-hop’ music genre. Since I have finished university, I continue to create Art, draw and set small projects for myself to keep developing and working on my skills.’
