Tomasz Pieszko is a Polish artist and designer based in Berlin.
In 2011, he received his MFA with honours in Painting from the Poznan University of the Arts. At the same time, he earned his
BA in Romance Philology from the Adam Mickiewicz University
in Poznan, Poland.
Pieszko’s painting develops around two main axes: human experience and pop culture. His work is inspired by the multiverse of a music video, which is a medium of mass culture in its pure form. In works such as ‘Party’, he draws attention to the context of man, mass culture, and popular music, but also elements of that culture, including music videos and advertisements, as sources of artistic inspiration.
The artist skilfully combines figurative painting and geometric abstraction in compositions creating a harmonious union, supported by the strength of saturated colour and a rigorous form. At the same time, he allows coincidences to affect his works in order to create an individual, nuanced and contemporary visual language
Party – If what you want to say is not more beautiful than silence, don’t say it, 200 x 125 cm, acrylic on canvas, 2009.
