“My philosophy: I believe in the happiness that exists on the other side of the paintbrush. It might sound like a bit of a cliché but this is the simplest and most honest way to describe my creative approach.” – Cwik
The Friday Club, Artwork done by Magda for the Pygmalion.
Magda has created some print and digital advertisements for music clubs and businesses like the Pygmalion in the Powerscourt Townhouse and the Button Factory in Temple Bar. She offers a vibrant and distinct style to these campaigns.
“The Pygmalion Effect is a series of vector illustrations that portray the transformation of people’s ideas, beliefs, images of who they are and where they are going. In this set of portraits, I focus only on women, but I will be introducing a male theme in the near future. The tag line is “Awaken Yourself” which is designed to change the way women see themselves in today’s world. The objective is to allow viewers to make their own interpretation when they view the illustrations.” – Cwik
