Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Karol Drzewiecki – For me painting is intimate record of my own expression. Through art, I express views of the reality that surrounds me, record emotional states and inspirations, and explore the possibilities offered to the artist by form and color. By coding in the pictures my own experiences, delights, thoughts and feelings, I let the viewer see my sensitivity.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
KD – I am fascinated by all forms of dynamics in painting. Starting from the way the work is carried out, through its subject matter, ending with design finishing. I am extremely inspired by the possibility of recording full, vivid expression on a static canvas. That is why I often reach for the painterly motif of an organism that is involved in the movement with complicated motorics. I am also interested in dynamics in the formal dimension, which finds expression in the style of the work.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
KD – I’m not only takes up current socio-cultural topics but also explores the mutual relations of forms and colors on a painting. My most important inspirations are dynamics and movement. They both are considered in the context of the painting theme and the expressive stylistics of the work.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
KD – I’m an artist who is always “hungry for development”. I’m focus on constant searching, I’m made street art a starting point for my paintings. In this context, such kind of artistic activity is considered to be a co-creator of the scenery of urban streets which gets into a discussion with passers-by, whose essence is constant movement. Therefore, the main themes depicted in my paintings are closely related to murals created on the basis of a pictorial template technique, which is used, among others, by Banksy and Victor Ash. Similarly to street art, my works do not shy away from commenting on the reality that surrounds us – the current social, political and cultural issues. My works widely exploit the pop culture elements such.

KD – It’s very interesting to be able to show paintings in such circumstances of architecture and traditional Venice’s interiors. It’s an amazing experience to meet artists from around the world.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
KD – I can’t speak fully on behalf of other artists but it was very emotional exhibition. Relations, social problems, our body, we in our world.
