A WOMEN’S THING – Interview, 2022
Warsaw-based intermedia artist Ewa Doroszenko’s practice is a graphic showcase of blending classic photography with digital manipulation and traditional painting.
Doroszenko’s works are made with great attention to detail—and an emphasis toward aesthetics. Yet underneath the obvious layers of beauty, the viewer can find the hidden, deeper issues, as if Doroszenko wants to tell us that, after all, everything is much more complicated than it seems.
We spoke with Doroszenko about what her typical day as an artist looks like, how the people of her home country Poland are helping Ukrainians during the war, and how her grandparents’ history still has an influence today.

NEO2 Magazine – interview, 2021
Ewa Doroszenko. Unreal beauty in all its splendor.
In her latest works, Polish artist Ewa Doroszenko focuses on the risks associated with beauty apps and the distortion of virtual beauty models. Ewa Doroszenko’s photographic work is based on manual and digital manipulation of images. The results are sensual and intriguing collages that address the pulsating issues of contemporary life, particularly the importance of the image in an increasingly technological reality and the fluidity of current standards of female beauty…

The second exhibition of Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko in Propaganda is a real untruth or an untrue reality.
