Hanna Barczyk was born in Germany and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design with a bachelor of Design. She creates conceptual illustrations for major publications such as The The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe and The Los Angeles Times, among many others. Inspired by her family's Hungarian folk art traditions, vintage Polish film posters, German Expressionism, memories, love, music, movement, and a passion for dance, she often illustrates emotional driven solutions that are bold, conceptual, and delicate at the same time. Hanna combines a variety of media, including pen and ink, acrylic paint, woodblock, and digital.
Hanna Barczyk has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, Creative Quarterly and 3x3 (Magazine of Contemporary Illustration). She has also been the recipient of the Melville White Award, received "Honorable Mention" from 3x3 Magazine and has been the subject of a feature in Communication Arts Magazine.
