Nina Kendzierska, a native to Gdensk Poland, is known for her intricate and elegant tapestries. She studied under Ignacy Kulkowski, a highly regarded artist associated with the Parisian School of Impressionism. She cites her main influence as Jacek Zulawski, a teacher at the so called "Sopot School" in which she studied. In a 2004 "Art Matters" Debra Kravetz wrote "Nina Kedzierska's work can be shocking or even overwhelming. Her heavy tapestries are hand-woven in three-dimensional textures to depict surreal dream landscapes and extensions extruding from the surfaces are woven back in with additional built-out structures and metal pieces.
