hey there

it's me, kalina juzwiak

a few years ago, around 2012, my belly grew big, my energy levels went down. I was not pregnant, at least not in the usual way. My body was talking to me. My soul was restless. I could not endure the denial routine I put myself into, any longer. I was giving birth to a new being. A whole new me. A new moment. Change. Transformations that became part of my journey until now. I just didn't know what it was back then...

hello, kaju :)

fast forward a few years, Kalina Juzwiak became a creative and artistic entrepreneur. She lives (from) her art with a systemic view, uniting discipline and determination to a pro active imagination. She is constantly developing her abilities to transform compositions - and situations - into provocative movements and moments of reflection to those that observe them. She uses art as a tool to enhance consciousness and perception of reality, actively inspiring the change of her context. And that is why vanguard people and companies choose her to transform their visions into reality by creating unique projects and experiences.

my values remain
the same.

CONTRIBUTION

impact as possible.

SPEED

to move fast and with precision.
even when changing routes is needed.

DISCIPLINE

a place formely unsuspected

"for this show, the exhibition space became a place, formerly unsuspected, where three visual explorations of the process and the idea of change come together. Whether this change has its origin in a geographical displacement, in the end or the beginning of a cycle, or in an unstoppable process such as ageing, it doesn’t matter. Change is the one unchanging thing in life, and the abstract concept that Kalina Juzwiak (kaju), Lara M. Shin and Maja Juzwiak seek to transform into a visual experiment, inspired by their own personal experiences with facing and dealing with change." [ la cápsula : art space and curatorial project ]

plasticity

An experiment, that aggregated artistic manifestations and aimed to instigate and inspire the connection of two women - the artists Kalina Juzwiak and Clara Coutinho. Vulnerability and courage, strength and intentionality transit through the overlapping of visions, naked body stamps, lines and movement.

cut the ties and jump

“cut the ties and jump” was an exhibition that reflected Kalina’s stage in life - during that time and space. A time in which she was connecting to her inner self, through connecting to the nature that surrounded her. A focus on living, learning, and transforming in a fulfilling way - within natural surroundings. Like a walk inside a forest with no destination. Or a swim between the waves that dance during a storm. A cutting of ties, imagined and real - a jump into the unknown.

concrete on metal

concrete on metal - or metal on concrete - mixed the geometry of metropolis with the organic lines of the artist Kalina Juzwiak, the kaju. The exhibition, in the Canvas Gallery, inside the Hilton Morumbi Hotel, portrayed concrete horizons on old iron mined metal sheets.
still interested?

ok, read my full story below:

my name is Kalina Juzwiak – many know me as just “kaju”. I was born in Brazil, but I also carry the Swiss and Polish nationalities. For most part of my journey I have lived in my country of origin and it was there that I chose Architecture and Urbanism as my first step to understand my environment. After working with national and international teams in architectural competitions (contests) - I found my real passion in the union of multi-cultural references, personal creative tools and multidisciplinary projects.
that is why I decided to look deeper into Graphic Design, which I studied - also in São Paulo - thus adding other capacities to my tool box. From an early age, artistic expressions have been part of my life, but only a few years ago have they become the link between all areas of my interest. Today, I make art with an aesthetic and systemic view. I am a focused and productive creative human, by uniting my discipline and determination to a pro-active imagination.
i am constantly developing my skills in transforming compositions into provocative movements and moments of reflection to those observing it. And that is why people and avant-garde companies choose me to transform their visions into reality and to create disruptive projects and experiences. I use creativity, discipline and systems thinking as tools for expression, conscience and transformation of my context. I have the aim to actively inspire change.
discipline is something very present in my life from my early years. For some time I struggled to see the connections of being an artist, and yet a very organized human. I couldn’t find the connection between my two sides, my two roots, until the day I perceived it as the thing that could give my creativity the wings to fly. To apply discipline in my daily routine, creations and connections. Mutual respect, the management of time, deadlines, valuing the work, the negotiation and punctuality are just some parts of this universe. Personal and professional lives are in unison (are one). And in this understanding I united art and business, discipline and creativity, chaos and order, and started to spread my experience, learnings, good and bad paths - to inspire other creatives to live well as artists.

oh, you're still here! : )
come on, say hello?

Thank you! Your submission has been received!

thanks for being here. I found a kind of manifesto to my self that I wrote back in 2013 and wanted to share it with you :)

"today I can say I embrace my most inner desires to be artistic and audacious I surrender to the need of being surrounded by beauty in all forms that represent the authenticity and love for creativity. I am now defined and choosing my life purpose as an artist and designer and refuse to spend the rest of my days pursuing anything that is not aligned with that purpose. I am ready and open to follow the success paths which are unfolding in front of me at this very moment. The universe conspires to bring me the perfect opportunities for wealth, happiness and peace of mind. I will listen to people and to my own heart, because it might be inspiring in ways I will not expect. But will not shrink when people diminish or laugh at my views and artistic ambitions. It doesn have to be right or wrong, just let it flow. I will challenge myself to try new things, to create every day, to promote, initiate and encourage arts. Help others in any way I can, share my creations often, live up to my potential. Have a crazy idea or two from time to time. Learn to say no from time to time. Not necessarily have a plan. If it scares me at some point, good, that will mean that I am putting myself out there. The sum of the parts. Breathe deeply and inhale the life that surrounds me. Always remember to have fun, be excited and be amazed. Smile at all times, create happiness and live a colourful life. This is only the start of my journey."
