The digital painting is a recreation of Caravaggio’s work Infidel Thomas. This modernized version shows Jesus as an ordinary man in a flannel shirt humbling to touch the wounds of the people changed by the artist from apostles to bandits. With this treatment, the artist wants to draw attention to a problem that exists in modern times – people who think they are close to God, but are actually corrupt businessmen who think they are saints often preaching that Christ is dangerous and must be feared.
Meanwhile, the artist wants to draw attention to the image of Christsus appearing in the New Testament, who was gentle, compassionate. Through his work, the artist tries to highlight that this empathy that Jesus had in him in the New Testament is missing in modern man – instead there is devotion and faith for show, the reign of fear, arrogance, hypocrisy and insensitivity to the harm of the poor and needy.
illustrator / concept artist / 2D animator
Artist originally from Koło, Poland. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź at the Faculty of Graphic Arts and Painting with a specialization in printmaking. In his work he draws inspiration from many different fields and creates in a variety of moods and techniques – from darkness and anxiety to vivid, bold and even abstract colors.
The main fields of his practice are concept art, illustration and occasionally 2D animation. In his work he tries not to think in one direction. He uses a wide range of styles – from comic and cartoon to semirealism and stylized realism. He always tries to select media and techniques so as to best capture the message and atmosphere of the work. He cares not so much to convey a content, but rather to tell a story. He often adds hidden details that give character and deepen the interpretation of the work. That’s why he especially likes illustrations. He is inspired by such artists as Piotr Jabłoński, Sergey Kolesov, but also by frugal and minimal ones such as Malika Favre.
