"My works concentrates on memory, imagination, dreams, childhood and happiness. I'm fascinated with the states which I cannot experience. For me being an artist is just a way of honest communication with World. I express only the necessary thoughts and things I need to communicate at the given moment. My art not only have a strong meaning and connection to myself, but also connects to my childhood and happiness. Although, often contains topics of health and sickness. I create a specific mythology of un growing. I think I'm a child and I will stay a child for ever.

Artists are people who are given a certain social privilege to act in ways that adults aren't supposed to act. And it is great. Thanks to that I feel safer and confident." Magda Bielesz
