Marta Chudolinska


Born in Poland and raised in the Toronto area, Marta Chudolinska is a multidisciplinary artist who makes comics that are introspective, surreal, silly, and sad using woodcut & linocut prints, papercuts, and a variety of drawing materials. Her first wordless graphic novel, Back + Forth: A novel in 90 linocuts, was published in 2009 by the Porcupine’s Quill and nominated for a Doug Wright Award, recognizing excellence in Canadian cartooning. Since then, she has continued to produce comics that incorporate her interests in personal narratives, fantastical stories and the handmade. Her papercut comic, Babcia, a historical memoir which aims to rebuild her connection to her late grandmother, is currently being serialized in Broken Pencil Magazine.
