Residents’ showcase

Meet the Artists:

Grazyna Ostrowska

Born in Poland in 1972 and for more than 20 years residing and working in Germany, I am a visual artist constantly exploring different forms of visual expression with the special focus on painting. 

In the 1990s, I have pursued studies at the Academy of Fine Art in Warsaw, shaping the foundations of a creative journey that spans both geographic and artistic borders.

Rooted in the influence of my childhood and adolescence time in Poland, my journey as an artist has been marked by a persistent quest to unveil the hidden beauty and fragility inherent in nature and life itself. Through my paintings, I strive to emphasize the order woven into the fabric of existence. My visual language is figurative, loose-modern-impressionism. 

My never-ending inspiration, drawn from travels and the exploration of foreign places, infuses each artwork with a dynamic energy that transcends boundaries. In this visual dialogue with nature, I aim to evoke a sense of wonder and reverence, inviting observers to peer beyond the surface and discover the subtle complexities that define our surroundings. Each stroke of the brush embraces the beauty of diversity and captures the essence of the interconnected world we inhabit.

As a professional illustrator, I run a studio ILLUS-ICONS-INFOGRAPHICS, visualizing facts & figures, designing data and drawing illustrated maps. My particular passion however belongs to painting. The exploration of various forms and mediums reflects a deep-seated curiosity and an unyielding commitment to artistic growth.

Sammi Carr

Sammi Carr is an Australian visual artist and is doing her residency with Prisma during February and March.
Her work leans into abstract and figurative expressionism, exploring disconnection and embodiment through her figurative work. She is also working with found materials sourced from Lisbon’s urban landscape to reconstruct what it means to discard plastic and rubbish and how this is not unique to any one place in time. The incorporation of materials into art work showcases that we can repurpose what is overlooked or undesirable, giving it a second look.
