Grace Makuch

Grace Makuch is a printmaker and illustrator from Chicago who is interested in the intersection of art and comedy. She recently graduated (magna cum laude, baby!!) from Columbia College Chicago with her BA in Fine Art. Under the moniker ‘Polenta_Girl’ she creates illustrations that often reflect themes of humor and performative sadness. Her work has been described as “devastating,” “vaguely relatable,” and “I don’t know, Grace, can you stop asking me questions about your work to quote in artist biographies?” She is very excited to spend more time at Spudnik Press this year, and learn how to use the riso machine.
