Polish artist Leszek Kostuj. Kostuj graduated from the Pedagogy and Art Department at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. Although he prefers oil and acrylic painting, Kostuj’s mediums also include drawing, and traditional and digital graphics. Starting from small realistic drawings, Kostuj’s paintings are inspired by surrealism and figurative abstraction.
“My art is in constant change, I am in search of the forms of artistic communication that would be optimal for me. When I begin to paint, it is quite frequent that I do not ponder over the final effect. Only when on the surface of the painting, the emerging patches, lines, colours begin to coalesce, the imagination rouses and provides an impulse to further artistic release. At this stage of creation, what begins to appear is ideas, visions, and concepts – all in order to create a work that is a fulfilment of my artistic and aesthetic needs”
