Wojciech BąkowskiBORN 1979, Poznań
Recurring motifs in Wojciech Bąkowski’s work include tunnels, spaces, and interiors, including the interior of the head. His animated films are like hypnotic visions: private, ultra-subjective statements in a characteristic “dirty” style. Bąkowski is a member of the Poznań-based collective Penerstwo, alongside artists such as Radek Szlaga, Piotr Bosacki, and Magdalena Starska. He graduated from the Poznań Academy of Fine Arts. Besides film animation, he practices audio performance, drawing, and the graphic arts. He obtained a master of arts degree in Prof. Leszek Knaflewski’s Audio Performance Studio, and an annex in Prof. Hieronim Neumann’s Animation Studio, 2005. He is also the leader of two music bands, KOT and Czykita. Member of the PINKPUNK association. Winner of the Views 2009 competition.
