Cezary PoniatowskiBORN 1987, Olsztyn
Painter, he also creates drawings, collages, sculptures and installations. He graduated from the Faculty of Graphic Arts of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.. His distinctive style, with black and white angular forms verging on representational and abstract, was early discovered by the polish art community. In 2013 he won Geppert Prize, one of the most important awards for young polish painters. Poniatowski's monochromatic paintings and drawings often draw from the tradition and aesthetics of calligraphy or graffiti. His sculptures and installations, sometimes hinting at the popcultural tropes, evoke a surreal, slightly grotesque atmosphere. Lives and works in Warsaw.
