“Art makes [the] world better and more beautiful. Try to find real art everywhere and let it inspire you,” 16 year-old artist Joanna Wirażka says. A self-taught artist from Poland, Wirażka paints breathtaking artwork on fallen leaves she collects from a park near her house.
She painted her first leaf on New Year’s Eve of last year, and she told Upworthy that she was “inspired by the brilliant hues of the fireworks in the night sky.”
And since that first leaf, she has kept on painting.
Wirażka says she is fascinated with the bright lights of metropolises such as New York, London and Los Angeles. Her dream is to see these cities in person one day.
“Art is my cure for stress — [a] hobby which fills my life. When I paint and draw, I forget everything and let my imagination create new things or just bring new reflections through painting,” she told the Huffington Post.
But she also has a powerful message for the world — that we desperately need to take care of our planet.
“I wanted to say that we don’t have to cut trees to have paper for drawing or painting. I think it’s important to raise people’s awareness about the really bad condition of our planet,” she says of her reason for painting on fallen leaves. She so elegantly portrays the damage deforestation is doing to our planet in this piece:
But don’t forget, she also has many other brilliant works of art that aren’t on leaves that you’ll love too. She posts her artwork on her Instagram, so keep yourself updated!
