TALENT SUPREME AND ALL ROUND NICE GIRL MADGA KSIEZAK TAKES FIVE TO SHOOT THE SHIT..
ok so lets just get a bit of an intro
I am a creative from Melbourne. I dabble in a lot of different things. Right now I’m playing around with paper craft and creating imagery around that. I would describe myself as a jack of all trades.
You won a scholarship.. at Magic Johnston, how has that been?
It’s been unreal. From the get go I couldn’t believe my luck. Amazing people, amazing space, the whole vibe has really been an eye opener. There’s no BS which is what I love about it.
Can you tell me a little bit about Magic J? what go’s on, who is there etc..
Magic Johnston is a shared studio space in Collingwood, Melbourne. I think it can sit up to something like 45 people. At the moment I have to say the majority of creatives are working in the digital realm but there’s also some other interesting things happening. Pretty much everyone there is freelancing so there’s a common ground for people to connect on. The longer I’m there the more it’s reminiscent of what art school was like for me. A community of like minded people. Everyone is really supportive and I think because it’s such a large space there’s always something interesting happening. Motto books and Everyday Coffee are also attached to the studio and that adds something special to it all.
You work with a few mediums, computer and paper, looking at your work its hard sometimes to tell what is hard and soft copy?
Yeah, that’s something that I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. The more I play around with this type of work the better I’ll get at mixing the two up. I don’t want to be making stuff that looks too rough and at the same time I’ve got to be careful not to over sterilize it so it just looks fake.
I think its funny that when we met, our first similar interest was the soap opera Neighbours.. You still watch it?
No. I think I got bored somewhere down the track. I am a sucker for soap opera’s though. Crime drama, even better.
