The artist’s work provokes, teases, and boggles the mind. Pictures by Sandra Kowalski, an advocate of the erotic genre, makes pulses beat faster and paints secret desires with bright colors. Kowalski combines anatomical proportions and vivid colors with provocative themes bordering on the erotic.
She received a master’s degree from the Institute of Cinematography (VGIK) in two fields – graphic art and film and television costume design. Collectors of her work include artists Ivan Dorn and Keti Topuria (A’Studio). Kowalski’s work has been exhibited in Moscow, Amsterdam, Bremen, London, Cannes, Los Angeles, Cyprus, Bulgaria, and Croatia.
Sandra Kowalski: I know human nature well, and so I start from what I know is interesting. We are often controlled by desires for love, association, sex; we reach for everything real and sincere. In my work I try to convey the emotion of love – not lust, not smut, but specifically the real desire for love between a man and a woman.
