Grit and Grace: Cityabyss from Poland

The unknown, strangeness and mysteries of the city incites the imagination. Beata Szczecinska aka Cityabyss creates cityscapes that are as alive as its people. Her work is a mosaic of industrial areas, skyscrapers, fashion; amplified with vivid dreams and meandering neon abstract elements. This fusion captures the atmosphere of life in the city, as chaotic as it may seem, cities expand and grow from our burning desire to innovate. Her work reminds us that the most confusing, difficult times can turn out to be moments of triumph. Grit and grace is the determining factor for success. Our growth is contingent upon our collective passion and perseverance.

Cityabyss is an artist, illustrator and designer living in Lomza, Poland. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts (Krakow) in 2004 with an MA (Hons) in Graphic Techniques. Her career began in London in 2005. She has amassed a diverse range of international clients from the fashion industry to interior design to publishing & editorial.
