Sylwester Ambroziak

 

1964, Łowicz

He graduated from the Faculty of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where he received a diploma in studio of prof. Grzegorz Kowalski. He is a versatile artist who specialises in carving, drawing but also installations and experimental animated films. He received scholarships from inter alia Notoro Foundation, Centre of Polish Sculpture in Orońsk, Culture Foundation and Kulczyk Foundation. He was also nominated to receive "Paszporty Polityki" prize in 1994, 1999 and 2008. His works are associated with New Expression in "Young Art" and they are characterised by simplicity and brutality in the form of deformation. Moreover, they are inspired by folk nature and African art. The artist also does not keep off from the biblical and Christian topics, although his interpretations are far away from formulaic canons and doctrine. Ambroziak also looks for inspirations in comic-books, cartoons, science fiction movies and in general mass culture. In this way the artist casts his mind back to the childhood in which the unlimited imagination played an essential part. As a result this set of factors contributed to the sculptures' silhouettes, their rescaling, deformation, factures and roughness.He presented his works on over 80 solo exhibitions and over 120 group exhibitions in Poland and all around the world.
