about

Malgorzata Maria (Gosia) Olchowska

born in Bartoszyce

lives and works in Belgium (Antwerp/Gent).

She obtained Master of Architecture diploma from TU Delft (NL) in 2007 and since then she was working as an architect at De Vylder Vinck Tailieu, Murmuur and Bovenbouw architectuur.

At this moment she is teaching at Gent University, Sint Lucas Gent and at Riga University Of Business, Arts and Technology.

Since 2009 she is following printmaking at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gent.

 

As an architect, I am mostly focused on drawings, models, collages. As a print maker, I am mostly focused on architecture: buildings, constructions, cities, scale, landscapes, development and growth. These two disciplines are continually crossing in my life. The starting point for my drawings are stories I come across when visiting places. My drawings are intended to describe them.
