Hanna Barczyk was born in Germany and currently divides her time between New York
City and Toronto, Ontario. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design
with a bachelor of Design. She creates conceptual illustrations for editorial, advertising,
book and institutional clients. Inspired by her family's Hungarian folk art traditions,
vintage Polish film posters, German Expressionism, memories, love, music, movement,
and a passion for dance, she often illustrates emotional driven solutions that are bold,
conceptual, and delicate at the same time. Hanna combines a variety of media,
including pen and ink, acrylic paint, woodblock, and digital.
Hanna Barczyk has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators, American Illustration,
Creative Quarterly and 3x3 (Magazine of Contemporary Illustration). She has also been
the recipient of the Melville White Award, received "Honorable Mention" from 3x3
Magazine and has been the subject of a feature in Communication Arts Magazine.
As quoted from a review of her work in Communication Arts magazine, Hanna Barczyk’s work “translated delicate emotions into universal truths”.
