To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Sylwia Krason, 30, of Roberston Road, graduated with an MA degree in Arts Policy and Management from Birbeck College before working in a number of London galleries.

Last year she launched her own not-for profit website, Contemporary Lynx, with the aim of encouraging an appreciation and understanding of Polish contemporary art.

“London is the perfect place to organise something like this and the diversity within Newham makes it a great base,” she explained.

“It’s exciting because there’s nothing else like it out there.”

Through weekly articles about interesting and prestigious art events around the world where Polish artists participate and succeed as well as information about art market and ways of collecting contemporary art.

And she aims to expand the exposure through more community-based events, hoping to showcase Polish artists in special exhibitions.

She added: “Art can approach people and change the atmosphere of the area.”
