by Krzysztof Musiał
Capturing scenes from everyday life requires an extraordinary skill of observation. This is precisely what the artist possesses. For the painting is a frame of everyday life that everyone has seen and passed by – two men, friends sitting on a bench. They lean towards each other to light up their cigarettes. It is clear that they know each other very well. There is no awkwardness between them, everything looks incredibly natural. The artist has shown a snapshot of these characters’ lives, demonstrating the depth of everyday life, the importance of small gestures.
The faces of the figures are blurred, grey. So are their bodies. This contrasts with the orange background, enhancing the characters and completing the composition.
Krzysztof Musiał born in Słubice, Poland. Graduate of the WSSS in Poznań in 2001. Obtained a diploma with honours in Painting under Prof. J. Świtka and an annex in Wall Painting under Prof. M. Łubowski. In addition, 2003 graduate of the Faculty of Artistic Education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań. He works as an instructor of drawing and painting at MDK No 2 in Poznań. He has also taught painting at Collegium Da Vinci in Poznań. Participated in more than a few dozen individual and collective exhibitions.
His painting centres around capturing the reality that is next to each of us. He devotes his attention to relationships, to accidental situations which at first glance are insignificant, but which ultimately turn out to be interesting and can say a lot about the human condition in the contemporary world. Musiał focuses on the moments that fill life, which we pass by indifferently.
