Michal Jackowski

At the center of Michał Jackowski's sculptural works are people, their spiritual condition and interpersonal relations. By using timeless, classical aesthetics and media Michał confronts existential and spiritual problems of we all have to face at some point of our lives.

Classical sculptural elements go hand in hand with pop-cultural references. This stark juxtaposition
encourages viewers to reflect upon their own history (life), history in general as well as their here and now.

Deeply rooted in the traditions of antiquity, the artist binds the latter with our modern mythology of consumerism. Resulting works are vivid, striking -classically beautiful and modern in the way they provoke our response.

Michal is a graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts; he lives and works in Poland.
