Part of the artistic process involves browsing through journal in search for articles that would suit the finished piece. Each collage is one of a kind as miscellaneous articles coming from different newspapers serve as background.”

JEZAK, PAWEL

Ballivor, Meath

Pawel Jezak is a Polish-native artist living and working from my home studio in Co. Meath, Ireland. "Throughout my life I have always been fascinated by images and how the world is seen through the eyes of others. As a result, in my teenage years I started drawing my own interpretation of the world surrounding me. Although the nature of my work varies from time to time, it almost always involves paper as a canvas. These canvases are made from a collage of newspaper articles placed together to create a truly unique background on which I can draw or paint in ink or acrylics. Part of the artistic process involves browsing through newspapers in order to find articles that would suit the finished piece. I draw inspiration from many sources; however, the most powerful images that trigger my imagination are black and white photographs. I believe that each piece of art should tell a story or be part of one."

Artist Statement

“Some people are reading words to imagine the world. My imagination is painting words to show them the world.”
