My life with a fox

My name is Mirella von Chrupek. I am a collector and photographer.
I’ve been collecting toys and dolls for quite some time now and photograph their ‘mini-worlds’. My intention is to create an illusion of parallel existences so that the viewer gets the impression these little objects lead their own life – only on a different scale. I recently started designing toys and dolls myself. My notebook is full of sketches of new creatures which I hope soon with see the daylight. My latest creations are: Dino Bambino- a sweet dinosaur and my doll Bulinka. I run my small gallery Gablotka which is situated in the centre of Warsaw, Marszałkowska 41 Street. Apart from this I also design shop windows.

I am a holder of the Scholarship of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
