Polina Soloveichik is an artist and muralist based in Berlin. She was born in Russia and studied illustration in Pratt Institute, New York. Her work can be seen on walls large and small across the globe.
While studying illustration at Pratt Institute, Soloveichik began to paint on the streets of New York and learned to make work inseparable from its place and context. Soon, she painted her first murals and the power to transform spaces with a bit of paint and some hard work has gripped her ever since.
Polina Soloveichik is known for her paintings for children. Being a mother herself she slowly but surely began to glimpse and relive the dreamy reality and the real dreams that children inhabit. Each of her kids murals is designed and hand-painted uniquely for a child and their little kingdom. While the initial concept is often imagined by the children and their parents, a mural’s final design caters to each room’s specific spatial and aesthetic considerations to create a perfect fit.
