Pawel Sliwinski (b. 1984) is a Polish painter based in Warsaw who believes that painting should transcend the need for a utilitarian function or purpose. Influenced by the German New Objectivity movement of the 20th century, Sliwinski’s paintings embrace a raw and almost satirical view of humanity, and continually reference deep-seated psychological concerns. Here we see a view of humanity that is at once completely responsible to our surroundings, both historically and contemporarily, yet strangely occupy a total divorce from reality.
Pawel Sliwinski has been selected as one of the 100 artists to be included in the forthcoming publication authored by Kurt Beers, director of Beers Contemporary, and published by Thames & Hudson. Sliwinski will also feature in Beers Contemporary’s first exhibition of 2014, a 4-man exhibition titled ‘Non-Sequitur’ which will run from January 9th to the 15th February.
