Visual Artist - Former Creative Director of Mindvalley
Dorota Stanczyk is a Polish visual artist, creative director, movie director, commercial and fine art photographer and designer. She completed her studies at the world-renowned College of Applied Arts ESAA Duperré in Paris.
To Dorota, art is instantaneous. She developed her taste for ephemeral design through her experience as a photographer and visual artist before transitioning into video direction. Upon her arrival to Paris in 2006, Dorota worked with brands such as Christian Dior, Alexis Mabill, Nouvelle Vague Music, Under the Influence Magazine and others. Her distinctive aesthetic styling enabled her to provide unique concepts for her highly visible clients. As a visual artist and video director, Dorota’s talent has been recognised through numerous awards, including Photo Awards for Creative Direction and Oakland Independent Artist’s Award for “Best Music Video.”
With a passion for travelling and exploring new cultures, Dorota has lived in Europe, North America, South America, Australia and Asia. Her travels were the inspiration for her 2013 worldwide art project, S.E.W.N. Into the World. S.E.W.N. (South, East, West, North) explores the
liberty, equality, integration and union between people and the world.
After 10 years of working in Visual Arts, Dorota created MoonKava — a conceptual artistic brand with a unique, well-defined style. The brand combines digital and physical arts to conceptualise services and create inspired, innovative designs and projects. Dorota believes that the greatest ideas are born from intuition, not from the process of rational thinking.
In 2017, she became the Creative Director of Mindvalley, an online education and personal growth company whose values aligned with hers. She applied her artistic knowledge to support new, innovative learning approaches and led a department of filmmakers, designers, writers and content marketing specialists. She created media campaigns, inspirational movies, content and immersive experiences (A-Fest, Mindvalley Reunion, MVU) that united and empowered people to become the best version of themselves, spread positive change and create lasting impact on the planet.
She also starred in her first full-length documentary, Enhanced States of Consciousness, which examines how people can tap into their creative potential by reaching higher states of consciousness.
She created and led Mindvalley’s “Evolutionary Woman” gallery exhibit, inspired by Barbara Marx Hubbard’s message: It Doesn’t Matter What Our Labels Are. It Matters What We Stand Up For. The project was published in Malaysia Tatler Magazine.
At a personal level, Dorota has been studying relationships for over 10 years. She completed her first socio-spiritual book, Understanding Love, finally. The book critically examines relationships by explaining how people’s behaviours impact their relationships with family, friends and most of all themselves.
