I do individual and double portraits. For the individual portraits I offer three sizes as these in my opinion work best for head / head and shoulder portraits, but I'll be happy to do a larger painting upon request. Double portraits start at 65×50cm for head and shoulders and can go up to 90×70cm for a half-length. All prices include shipping within Europe (for shipping outside of Europe, please contact me). The painting ships in a sturdy box with plenty of cushioning so rest assured it will safely arrive in your home. It is ready to hang (hooks at the back) but if you'd like advice regarding framing, I'm more than happy to help.Ask me anything
Lady with a dog, 2010, oil on canvas, 72×56cm
In my family house, the most representative wall used to be taken by the family portraits. Most of them came from my grandfather’s brush, a very skilled artist who would paint his closest relatives with all his heart. The significant absence of present day family representations has been successfully filled by Malwina Chabocka. The portrait of my wife has an aura highly visible to those who know her. Needless to say, a portrait with no aura is merely an enlarged ID photo. I have had the opportunity to see other portraits painted by Malwina Chabocka and I am glad to see the similarities in terms of the technique. The young artist has already developed her style and is recognisable.
Portrait of Roman, 2011, oil on canvas, 50×40cm
The portrait painted by Malwina Chabocka has been hung in the centre of my apartment. It enables me to feel the presence of the person portrayed, that is my late husband. The artist has wonderfully captured not only the physical resemblance but also his character, personality, his unique gaze and smile. The portrait gives me a great deal of pleasure and delights all other people who see it.
Portrait of Joana, 2018, acrylic on canvas, 35×30cm
Being an artist, I portray myself a lot and it's very rare having other artists portraying me. When it happens, it can be quite a profound experience of self-recognition and self-reflection. Seeing myself through Malwina's eyes and brushes was a special and spiritual moment. I've long been an admirer of her style and technique and in this painting I can clearly see how gently and beautifully she handled her admiration for me as an object to freely express her great talent.
Portrait of Katrin, 2018, acrylic on card, 45×32cm
I think Malwina captured me well-not only my physical appearance, but she really sensed the inner duality of my character. I loved the colors she used- pink as a resemblance of an energetic girl who conquers cities. Blue as the sadness and deeper thoughts.
Portrait of Karolina and Piotrek, 2019, acrylic on canvas, 30×40cm
I am glad that I have met Malwina in my life. The years are passing by, but when I look at my portrait, I think that's who I am. I think Malwina can capture something real, something individual. Besides, I like its color palette, it is also very characteristic and unique.
