Portrait of an Artisan~Sylwia Bartosik

Sylwia Bartosik raises awareness of organ donation through anatomical fashion.  Each clothing item is accented by a certain aspect of the human anatomy though her simplified embroidered medical illustrations on various types of fabrics.

Using found, plain t-shirts, shirts and skirts, as well as some vintage items, Sylwia builds small narratives on her fabrics that, once worn by individuals, become integrated with the body that wears them. 

The fashion industry has many similarities to that of the art market - both to deal with making original and beautiful objects.  These objects accent an idividual's personal style and help to emphasize one's own unique sense of character and identity!
