Her paintings radiate energy of intertwining forms and colours; her work covers watercolours evocative of Indian mandalas which she has been painting since the late 1960s, ink drawing and oil painting. The artist has created her own world filled with esoteric, magic, and the conviction of absolute unity and harmony of the world. Urszula Broll has taken part in numerous exhibitions in Poland and abroad. The year 2005 marked the 50th anniversary of Broll’s artistic career. To commemorate the occasion BWA in Jelenia Góra and the Gallery of Contemporary Art in Katowice published an album devoted to her work which also accompanied solo exhibitions in Galeria Sztuki BWA Zamek Książ in Wałbrzych and Galeria Sztuki in Legnica, and also in Galeria Art NEW Media in Warsaw in 2006.
