Agata Rek is a Polish artist and designer. She is the founder and operations manager of One Imagenation, a vintage clothing curator and creative interdisciplinary artist. Her background provides a unique insight into art. Her work typically features a point of view created from observation and intuition, trying to capture something intriguing, intersecting two conflicting emotions such as strength and tenderness. Her work bridges multiple disciplines, fluidly weaving creative roles mainly as an artist and photographer. She has been commissioned to create imagery for fashion designers, brands, magazines and publishers, including Macy’s, Ted Baker London, Wedding Magazine, Darling Magazine, Beyond Luxury London and Vaute Couture New York.
She finds inspiration in a wide variety of places constantly observing surroundings, but her true inspiration is women strength, vulnerability and inner being. Having lived in Europe and the United States, she feels at ease with the visual landscapes of both. In her practice and diverse body of work she tends to experiment with traditional techniques such as analog collage, motion collage, illustration and photography. She aims for clean form in her work with a touch of energy, healthy weirdness and spice of darkness.
She resides in Florida. In 2014 the city of Miami invited her to participate in a collective exhibition for the best artists of the year. She has a successful track record at the places she’s shown, with awards and individual art exhibitions in Poland, Germany, and the United States. Having fans far and wide, her work has also been appreciated by the likes of Barbara Hulanicki, Anja Rubik, Tasya van Ree, Ian Schrager, Bruce Weber and others.
