Nisja is born in in 1978 in Warsaw where she studies at the Art Academy specializing in painting and lithography. She then moves to Bologna where she continues to study at the antique Academy. Here, along with painting, she learns the art of etching. For a short period she studies in Granada to then conclude her academic career in Bologna. After some small exhibitions in Italy she moves to Amsterdam, where she currently lives and works.
Nisja paints urban landscapes which could be the scenography of a thriller-fairytale. Crooked compositions with large fields of colour and impossible perspectives create images of places visited in reality or only in the reality of the mind.
