Dawid Radziszewski

Tomasz Kowalski

Tomasz Kowalski (born 1984 in Szczebrzeszyn) studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków (2004-2009). He is the winner of the Guerlain Foundation Drawing Award (2014). Kowalski shapes a critical and associative portrait of a present marked by accelerated change. His paintings, sculptures and music capture the diffusion of a centreless world and the ways in which such conditions impact our perceptions of basic categories, such as selfhood, space and time. His works suggest a conception of society where sleep, introspection, dreaming and wakefulness are equally present. They assert the unconscious as a liberating force – at once in and out of this world.
