polish artist maria umievskaya found herself interested in asian culture and has used her curiosity as a catalyst for a creative project; her series of digitally-manipulated images intersects art and architecture, traditional and modern, digital and tangible.

 

sketches of symbols and motifs stylistically similar to those found in ancient asian cultures have been added to the exterior facades of cutting-edge, contemporary japanese homes. using several buildings — in the typical style of houses currently popular in japan — umievskaya has visualized the idea, overlaying portraits, flowers and clothing onto the surface of the structure as if it has been hand-painted. the mural-like effect bridges two disciplines and time periods together, creating a mock-urban intervention in suburban japan, from her own studio in kiev.
