by Krzysztof Musiał
In the foreground of this intriguing painting, we can see a middle-aged man – opening his mouth in an attempt to make an exclamation. In the background, two other people can be seen gesticulating in a manner suggestive of an argument. The artist shares with the audience his observations of people bickering – often on the street, in bars and other public places. The title, however, is Stop I, as if the painter wanted to make it clear that shouting at each other never solves conflicts, that there is another way. On the other hand, he merely captured the situation out of context and showed it vividly while commenting on the reality in which we exist.
The artist covered the figures with a red background, which is a symbol of anger. With this treatment, he shows more bluntly what emotion he wanted to capture in the painting.
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.
