Natalia Wrobel

Natalia Wróbel is a Polish-American artist based in Amsterdam, NL. Born and raised in sunny La Jolla, California, she moved to New Hampshire to study studio art and art history at Dartmouth College, and completed a post-graduate Atelier program at the New York Studio School. Feeling rooted by traveling the world, she has lived and painted in Vermont, Brooklyn, Cambridge, Berlin and now, Amsterdam. Her work has been featured at notable international art fairs including Art Basel: Miami, Texas Contemporary, and Art SouthHampton and has been an official selection at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and MassArts. Her paintings are part of numerous international private collections in Australia, China, Italy, Poland, Germany, and around the United States. In her paintings, Wróbel creates portals to imagined, meditative worlds inspired by travel, ancient architecture, neural networks, botanics, lyric poetry of Mary Oliver, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Pablo Neruda, and esoteric philosophy. Her paintings are discussed in relation to Mary Oliver's poetry in an essay about Relevance Theory in the forthcoming book: Reading Beyond the Code: Literature and Relevance Theory (Oxford University Press, May 2018)
Ultimately, she paints from the soul.
