Krzysztof Schodowski was born in 1983. Comes from Olsztynek, now lives in Warsaw. Krzysztof is involved mainly in drawing. In art, he is most interested in man’s internal processes – the ones that are talked about as well as those which are not disclosed. Co-founder of the artistic group Artpub, leading Artpub Galeria, Artpub Literatura and Artpub Album.
Krzysztof Schodowski’s line technique gives a very special look to all the faces perpetuated on his portraits: their skins seem to be ripped off, and what can only be noticed are the muscles and nerves. In that way the exteriority may have been neglected and as it is shown on the anatomy boards for med students, the interiority becomes apparent. Nevertheless it’s still far and away from the very scheme of medicine drafts. Schodowski has never decided to comment the physicality, but to focus on the mental experience. On all his pictures a far more than anywhere the figures express the resignation, depression and alienation. They happen to be – not exactly set free from the reality, but simply removed. Who should be blamed for that act? What is the reason? What part of that feeling was built by intimate artist’s experience and what part by the personal, sensitive observation of the surrounding world, by the strict focus on what has been rejected by the majority of artists?
