Tomasz KowalskiBORN 1984, Szczebrzeszyn
Tomasz Kowalski uses classic painting compositions and themes, as well as drawing on the traditions of Renaissance and Surrealist art. He likes to give his pieces an aged look and uses vintage materials, creating the impression that his paintings come from beyond time. He filters painting history through his own unique language that brings to mind a dream reality, full of elaborate metaphors and details. Kowalski is a graduate of Prof. Leszek Misiak’s studio at the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts' Faculty of Painting. He debuted in 2006 at Cracow’s Nova Gallery. He has had solo exhibitions at the Pies gallery in Poznań, the BWA in Zielona Gora, and at Berlin’s carlier gebauer.
