PawełSobczak

 

Paweł Sobczak was born in 1997 in Mikołów (Poland). He is an art student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. His works have been exhibited in Poland and abroad (Spain, the United States, Japan).


P. Sobczak's art seems to be a form of self-therapy, an attempt to face a difficult past and childhood. The main theme of his work is homme fatale - a rare motif depicting a fatal man. It is present in his self-portraits, male nudes, portraits of people from the circle of the artist, and in fictional characters. These representations are accompanied by a variety of symbolism. In turn, the emotional charge emanating from the paintings is built with the help of intense and expressive colors "infected" by dark tones of dripping paint - this evokes feelings similar to those when looking at a beautiful fruit eaten by rot.

 

The content and style of Sobczak's paintings may evoke ambivalent emotions in the viewer - on one hand, lust, attraction and obsession (appropriate to the energy of life), and on the other, feelings of passing, melancholy or corruption (attributed to the sphere of death).
