Biography

Łukasz Olek (born in Warsaw, 1982) is a painter, illustrator and creator of applied graphics. Initially devoted to monochromatism – using traditional drawing techniques: pencil and ink – with time, he discovered the wealth of colour possibilities offered by acrylic paints. Among his creations, you can find both large-format abstractions, kept in cool colours, as well as figurative painting with turpistic, dark portraits.

Olek is fascinated by the works of Francis Bacon, Mark Rothko and Lucian Freud. His works are in-depth studies of texture and colour, using original materials and painting media. They were presented at several exhibitions, collective and individual, and have found buyers in many countries all over the world.

Ney Gallery, Warsaw. Individual exhibition "Blinkered"
Blinkered is a slice of the world seen through a photographic lens and translated into the language of abstract painting. The author invites us to aesthetically vivisect the work and look at the details hidden on the surface. This gives the effect of dualistic perception, in which large-format paintings attract attention as close to the detail as possible.
