During her studies she worked as costumes designer assistant, she attended mosaic and painting classes at Carrara Academy in Italy, thanks to Erasmus students Project.
She became a painting teacher in Pietrasanta, Tuscany.
Today she teaches different painting techniques in Milan.
Her artistic path has been deeply influenced by her dad who worked as an architect, her artworks often represent building facades that Mezynska has seen all over the world. Travelling abroad, the artist spends most of the time searching for inspiration by the urban landscape, taking pictures of buildings that are the basis of her re-elaborated painting process.
Enormous facades are depicted filled with copious windows in order to underline the artist’s will to peek at everyday life private moments.
Impersonal walls become alive through reflection and shades depiction. Mezynska’s art is typified by the deep interest in detail.
