Studio Bank was born out of a passion for art.
Studio Bank is an artistic studio that was created out of love for art. It is located in the heart of Warsaw and is one of the few places that survived World War II. It is an ultra-modern studio where artistic life is vibrant, combining craftsmanship with artistry. Studio Bank was established in 2009 as the studio of artist Szymon Kobusinski and is strongly connected to Warsaw’s history. It has been attracting the art community for several years, with thousands of people adding their “bricks” to build a new chapter of this unique place.
Studio Bank is located in the heart of Warsaw. This historic building, was designed at the end of the 19th century by the then rector of the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, Professor Leontiy Nikolaevich Benois. More than a century of its rich history can be seen at every turn. The 7-meter high brick arcade of the vault and the historic floor remember the times of the Tsar. From 1907 it housed the Russian State Bank, which later became the pre-war headquarters of the Polish Bank. T here was the treasury and it was here that most of the Second Republic’s gold, as much as 37 tons, was stored. They were kept in canvas bags stamped with the Bank’s seals. Traces of these stamps can still be seen on the original floor of the Studio. The building is located in the very center of the historic part of the city, next to Theater Square, on Danilowiczowska Street, which intersects with Bielańska Street – formerly Giełdowa Street – once one of the busiest streets in pre-war Warsaw. During World War II, the Nazi occupiers organized a prison within these walls. The buildings have been called the “Redoubt of the Polish Bank” since the summer of 1944, the time of heavy fighting during the Warsaw Uprising. It is one of the few places in Downtown Warsaw that survived World War II. Unfortunately, it was forgotten for several decades….
