Joanna Tyka Biography


Joanna Tyka "Lives to paint and paints to live."
Tyka knew early that art would always be part of her life. At age 6 she won a children's art competition and felt her first real reward from painting. While aiming to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, she grew to love music and sports as well as art. She attended the Warsaw Philharmonic regularly as a child and developed a solid understanding of classical music, which later became a strong theme of her paintings. Skiing, tennis, flying ,golf and sailing -- she is a past national champion of Poland in small boats -- built a drive to compete and achieve that serves her well as she forges an artistic career in one country after another.
She graduated with honors from the Academy of Fine Arts and had a show at the Zacheta Museum, one of the most prestigious art institutions in Poland.

The path of emigration had taken her family to Canada and to France; Joanna Tyka went to Germany and settled in Hamburg, where her passion for sailing could thrive. She worked in design -- on graphics, fashion and tapestry -- and as a sailing correspondent. Always, too, she painted. She lived for a while in Mallorca, Spain. In Germany she won many art awards, including the Altona Prize in Hamburg, and her work was exhibited in museum shows. Yet she was looking for new inspiration, and finally moved to Miami.Tropical colors and flora now influence Tyka's painting. Some critics have identified a "Tyka style" in her startling coloring and dynamism and whimsical portrayals of life in South Florida. Themes from Latin America and the Caribbean abound on her canvas.The Tyka style has allowed her to create strong relationships with fine art societies and galleries in the United States and Europe. She has had many commissions, especially from the world of music. The Princeton Boys Choir and the Philadelphia Boys Choir have Tyka paintings hanging in their offices.
