Hanna Kaszewska (born 1989) is an interdisciplinary artist and illustrator of Polish origin.


Hanna views the creative process as exploration and an attempt at understanding the world around her. She is against putting constraints on art and feels it should be able to fuse freely with other areas of life. She holds to the idea that less is more and has a strong inkling for minimalist aesthetics.


The mix of broad interests and sheer necessity led Hanna to work with different media and take on different roles within the cultural sector. Whether you need an illustration, a photo, some help designing a book, or have a totally different creative endeavor in mind - she may be your person; available for commission or collaboration.


Hanna is fluent in Polish and English and able to communicate in Japanese.
