A Tattoo On A Woman’s Back Of ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ Is Not What It Seems To Be

Published 5 years ago

When you take a look at this photograph it might seem like any other ordinary picture capturing a beautiful back tattoo inspired by Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights” painting. Well, your first impression couldn’t be more wrong because what you are actually looking at is a painting within a painting created by a young Polish artist, Agnieszka Nienartowicz.

Agnieszka graduated from Gdańsk Academy of Fine Arts only two years ago, and she is already amazing everyone with her truly outstanding creations. In an interview with My Modern Met, Agnieszka explained how her work captures the beauty of human nature: “Humans are full of contrasts and contradictions, they want to do good and instead they do evil. I was thinking about human nature, about sin and the will of evil which are inscribed in our being, like written inside us. And then I connected it with the Bosch’s triptych, which speaks of human nature. I love this painting, it is so strange, weird and beautiful at the same time.”
Nienartowicz’s work brings history and tradition to the 21st century, and as Agnieszka says: “I treat each element like any other item, but on the other hand, the historical elements bring a story and an emotional load with them. At the same time, by including them in my paintings, I give them the new context, meaning, and a new life. Maybe it is also a kind of a tribute to the Old Masters?”
