Joa Zak (aka Joanna Łuczaj) was born on May 9, 1979 in Kielce, Poland.
Joa Zak is a Polish visual artist, one of the main representatives of the Discursive Geometry movement. She works mainly in the field of painting, but in her artistic achievements also has a digital graphics and video.
Her art is inspired by the creation of invisible paths by people in private and public spaces: in apartments, shopping malls, museums and art galleries. Her immediate theoretical background is visual ethnography, from which Joa Zak took the concept of 'creating invisible paths'. The colors of the works and other formal assumptions are explained by the author in the descriptions of four series of works: JOA'S ACTIVITY, JOA'S ACTIVITY (SEPARATE PATHS), SHOPPING MALLS and the MUSEUMS & ART GALLERIES series.
Another inspiration is the paths that Joa Zak creates while jogging. She uses the GPS record of the route she runs in a city or landscape. This series of images is called CREATING PATHS.
Joa Zak is actively involved in the national and international artistic life. She is the author of numerous exhibitions, both individual and collective, carried out in well-known and respected galleries and museums, not only dealing with geometric art.
