agula swoboda: Podsumowanie
Not everybody has to be satisfied with contemporary art.
And being dissatisfied is not derogatory in itself. (...)
The discomfort caused by the impossibility to understand contemporary art is desirable since it can encourage self-education. Things go wrong when, if we are unable to comprehend something, we react with rejection and negation. Such a reaction may happen in response to contemporary art, political views or another person.
Regardless of the circumstances, for thinking being such an approach must be treated as a failure. We can accept something or not, but first we should get to know and understand it.”
(Monika Szewczyk, "Contemporary art does not need to impress us. The Unbearable Lightness of Ignorance")
As one of the main mechanisms of creating culture and worldviews, art is a powerful tool in the hands of human beings. On the one hand it is embedded in the realities of everyday life; it makes use of episodes documenting everything that is commonplace around us.
On the other hand it leads to extreme experiences through which it touches upon something metaphysical, something unattainable in any other way than through encounters with art. In our understanding art is a form of interpretation of reality that surrounds us – a kind of specific, visual language.

4D art studio
December 2010 – Present (2 years 7 months) Cieszyn, Poland
4DART Studio was founded by Agula Swoboda and Tom Swoboda, visual artists who believe that art is a living and galvanizing thing – a flywheel, so to speak, of our universe. 4DART Studio forms a space where art permeates the reality of everyday life and resonates revealing its many faces.
4DART Studio constitutes a creative environment, focused on humans in terms of their both individual as well as social aspects. We carry out artistic activities in the public sphere, visual communication, education, design and various art projects.
Referring to emotions, intellect, culture, sociology and spirituality, we confront the viewer with themes which are crucial to the modern people.
4D art studio also has founded THE SCHOOL OF DRAWING, PAINTING, PHOTOGRAPHY AND THINKING.
In the School we have an individual approach to each and every one of the course participants, we pay attention to the particular demands of their artistic development or the specialization of the artistic studies they have chosen. We teach, motivate, talk and help them create their own visual language as well as advise on choosing further education in our country and abroad. Graduates of our courses are currently studying at art universities in London, Bournemouth, Katowice, Lodz, Poznan and Warsaw, Czech Republic.
The School of Drawing, Painting, Photography and Thinking offers preparatory classes for art schools and personal development activities in 4 groups:
-Drawing and Painting for Advanced Participants (addressed to future students of art schools, architecture and industrial design).
-Drawing and Painting for Beginners (addressed to future students of art schools, architecture and industrial design).
-Creative classes in drawing and painting for children.
-Digital photography course for beginners and advanced participants.
