Journey Within – Marta Witkiewicz

Graphite and colored pencils drawing "Journey Within" by Marta Witkiewicz

“Journey Within” started as a reflection on the artistic path with all its ups and downs, learning experiences, growth opportunities, triumphs, trials and frustrations. As the drawing unfolded, I realised this path is not only about progress but also about losses that occur quite unnoticed. In our pursuits of honing our skills, we trade a piece of our innocence and blissful naivety. Do you remember times when a chunk of “not good” paper served as a playground and a piece of broken crayon taped together as a toy? Times when mistakes were just opportunities to explore uncharted territories, when perfectionism was not a chain that bounds us?
