Michał Jackowski born on September 14, 1978 in Białystok, Poland.
He graduated from the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in Poland. In the
centre of his compositions there are people, their spiritual condition and
interpersonal relations. By using timeless, classical aesthetics Michał
visualises everlasting problems with which everyone needs to confront.
Classical elements go hand in hand with those borrowed from the world
of pop-culture and encourage the viewers to reflect upon themselves as
well as their here and now.
The artist, deeply rooted in the traditions of antiquity, binds the latter
with our modern mythology of consumerism. His endeavours often result
in vivid, striking works. Among the principal characters of his objects
one can count both the ideas like beauty personified by Aphrodite or
narcissism embodied by ancient god Apollo as well as common
“Everyman” pictured via unindividualised, classical female and male
Pop art symbols including speech balloons, chewing gums,
hamburgers, dollars or the Beatles and Rolling Stones song lyrics
juxtaposed with the above elements result in deep, intriguing and
contrasting relationship, which, as the artist hopes, will inspire viewers to
start a meaningful dialogue with the art works.
„Human being always stands in the centre of my interest.
I am interested in values we choose to follow and relationships we build
with others. Exploring the field of human desires and emotions, many
questions about condition of a modern humanity arise in my mind. I try to
answer them with my sculptures. In exactly the same way I work on own
progress, sculpturing myself slowly day by day. My main artistic mission
is to leave afterthoughts in your mind. Through my art I would like to
touch your feelings and make you reflect on the subject.
Classicism is a universal language of art, a timeless code. Pop culture
is a substantial „Here and now”. I work with symbols from both of these
traditions. I introduce modern elements into a classical form in order to
ask you: Who are you? What relationships you have with others?
Can you see a human in a human being? Can you experience him or her?
Can you see the beauty? Do you dare to experience deeply? Is your path
the one you have chosen?
Can you love?
Can you truly be with another person?”
