Collection: About Andrea Kostyal

Andrea moved to Hattiesburg in 2008. Her dreamlike paintings are inspired by urban landscape and nature that reflect experiences from her childhood and young adulthood. She grew up in a small town in Europe where playing outdoors and gardening were commonplace. Later, she studied art and textiles in an artistically and culturally rich city in Hungary filled with beautiful historic buildings and architectural masterpieces. Her craving of dynamic city life, the sense of the streets’ atmosphere
suggests that her paintings investigate the natural environment and their connections with man-made structures in harmony. She enjoys composing her carefully planned transferred photographs of street views of Mississippi towns and cities, as well as places she has visited. Playful bubbles permeate the whole painting in poetic movement on the canvas, reflecting her feelings and moods.
