An art graduate from Canning Town wants to raise the profile of Polish artwork across the capital.

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.”
