Artur Przebindowski


artur-przebindowskiArtur Przebindowski – painter and graphic artist. He was born on July 14th, 1967 in Chrzanów. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow in 1993. His supervisor was prof. Roman Banaszewski. As of 1995, he has been regularly presenting his works at exhibitions in Poland and abroad. Painting of Przebindowski’s can be characterized by a well-thought-out image construction, multi-dimensionality, interpenetration and interaction of many perspectives and plans. Visually interesting fragments of urban space have become the main reason for the artist to create autonomous arrangements of visual signs, and this effect is enhanced by multiplication and compositional amendments. Also, sensitivity to sensual qualities of artwork, such as color and light, has played an important role in his works.

Artur Przebindowski has had over twenty individual exhibitions at many galleries, for example the ASP Gallery in Cracow (Homo Faber, 2016), Płock Gallery of Art (Dipping (Zanurzenie), 2015), or at art events, such as the XXII and XXIV Festival of Polish Contemporary Painting in Szczecin (2008, 2012). Also, he has presented his works as a part of cyclical show ‘Megalopolis’ shown at Bielska BWA Gallery, at the Regional Association of Zachęta of Fine Art called ‘Konduktorownia’ in Częstochowa (2011) or at BWA Rzeszów (2013).
