polish artist Luiza Niechoda simplifies landscapes with its pixelated style. Inspired by the Pacific Northwest and Romantic artists like Friedrich and JMW Turner, she creates striking renditions of verdant forests and misty mountain backdrops. Instead of focusing on details, however, she prefers to use abstraction to focus on specific feelings.
Hailing from a background in marketing and graphic design, Niechoda decided to pursue painting full-time in 2018. Since then, his style has taken turns, evolving from hyper-realistic windows covered in raindrops to expressive landscapes. “One of the main factors that influenced my new style was definitely my education (I have an engineering degree in geodesy and cartography),” says Niechoda. “I decided that I wanted my paintings to incorporate geometric shapes and that my brushstrokes were only vertical and horizontal.”
Each of his canvases features dark green pine thatch and blue-toned ground and sky. Tree shapes are distorted by geometric swatch applications, which in turn make the image look like it’s still loading. Moreover, this intentional style gives the compositions emotive qualities. “My work is a mix of sharp lines and softness, balancing between realism and hard-edged geometric abstraction,” she continues. “I know that my pieces are landscapes, but in my head, they are feelings.”
