Are you batik lovers? Indonesian people are not the only who love batik. A Poland artist, Mrs. Dorota Wielkosielec is in love with this beautiful patterned fabric. Mrs. Dorota Wielkosielec is exhibiting approximately 50 pieces of her monumental batik painting from April 28 until May 29, 2011 at the Museum of Textile in Łódż, Poland. Indonesian Ambassador for Poland attended this exhibition in order to fulfill the invitation from Marcin Oko, Director of the Textile Museum of Łódż.

Batik paintings by Mrs. Dorota Wielkosielec are all in abstract motif. Among her batik paintings, there's a painting depicting the city at night with lights, and there's also a painting with bird wings motif. Her batik paintings are made as artwork and for decoration. Since 2001, Mrs. Dorota Wielkosielec has been giving batik training at the Center of Education and Culture in Warsawa. She has also been asked to give batik training at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsawa. She often holds batik exhibitions such as in Warsawa (in 1995, 1999, 2003, and 2004), Siedle (in 1999 and 2003), and Łódź (2005).

Batik for Indonesian people is not only considered as a textile product that is used for everyday wear, but as a textile product with taste of art, value and pholosophy. Batik has been confirmed by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity from Indonesia on October 2, 2009. The Ambassador's presence at the exhibition shows that batik is a heritage from Indonesia and that Indonesia is very supportive toward the development of batik in the world, including Poland.
