The work is a copy and at the same time its own interpretation of the painting Babie Lato by Józef Chełmoński. The work refers to the Polish rock music festival once known as Woodstock and now Po’and’Rock Festival. It is known throughout Europe for its very laid-back, rebellious, but also welcoming atmosphere.
The unusual idea of reinterpreting the painting reveals a whole new world of meanings – it overcomes the patriotic barrier built up over the years by museum and art historians who revere the (unusual, of course) artist that was Chelmonski. It gives the distance so necessary to contemporary art. The work brings some relief to the reception of art (especially so-called “high” art, pumped up over the years by patriotic interpretations). It shows that art can be played with and made contemporary in an interesting way with details.
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.
