KATAGYNA "KAT" NIEWIADOMSKA
Katagyna ‘Kat’ Niewiadomska is a self taught artist, author and speaker inspired by bold colors and emotive expressions. She was born in Lebanon in 1978 to foreign parents and was heavily influenced by the sense of otherness she experienced growing up. Katagyna studied Electrical and Ocean engineering in the United States, is an MIT graduate and received her PhD in Environmental science from the University of Paris but her desire for adventure and change allowed her to live and work in places like Cape Cod, Nice, Sicily, Dubai, Shanghai, Bali and Mumbai. Kat’s passion for art and writing began at an early age but it was motherhood that moved her to trade working with underwater robots and writing software to working with acrylics and writing creatively.
Her TEDx talk on The Power of Distraction tells that story. Katagyna’s acrylic and mixed media work is heavily influenced by her international background, her global experience and her desire for a deeper sense of humanity in the world. Her artwork has been featured in group exhibitions locally and abroad and resides in private collections in Dubai, Lebanon and the United States.
