Voytek

 

Artist Statement

The combination of Old World sentiment with a new, modern flavor is so powerful in Voytek's art. Each canvas this artist creates evokes memories of his native Poland, yet incorporates images from European, American or even purely imagined vistas. Canvasses are prepped with a Renaissance-style, red base-coat, which causes his work to glow with internal light, that is visually dramatic and yet, quiet in mood. His technique was learned through years of study at the Strzeminski Art Academy in Lodz, Poland.

Artist Biography

Voytek's warm landscapes display the artistic influences of Mark Chagall and Henri Matisse. Like Chagall, this artist, born in Poland in 1959, paints soft, nostalgic memories of his eastern European homeland.
Voytek's unmistakable love for the theatre is another powerful influence visible in his artwork. Painting was one of the many artistic outlets he pursued at the Strzeminsky Art Academy of Poland, which he attended. He excelled not only in the fine arts, but in graphic arts and set design as well. The time spent in and around the theatrical arts would mold the artist's consciousness and leave him with an everlasting dramatic spirit. His landscapes, brimming with vivid colors and confidently drawn supple lines, seem prepared to embrace the human drama.
