Invitation to exhibition by Karol Pomykała in LuCreate Open Studio

LuCreate Open Studio invites you to a further vernissage in our gallery. "Old Beginning" is an exhibition by an exceptional artist - Karol Pomykała, who in his work combines in a unique way two radically different techniques - traditional printmaking, which is linocut, and virtual reality, thanks to which we will be able to "go inside" his graphics. The opening will take place on 26 November in the space of Pracownia Otwarta at 53 Krakowskie Przedmieście Street in Lublin.

Karol Pomykała - graphic artist, doctor of fine arts, art director. Born in Zamość, lives in Warsaw. In 2021 he received a scholarship from the Minister of Culture under the Młoda Polska programme. He creates works mainly in linocut technique, combining traditional artistic printmaking with new technologies, creating graphic installations combining VR and linocut. On a daily basis, he also works with digital art and advertising.
He has participated in many national and international exhibitions, his works receive many prestigious awards and distinctions in the country and around the world, of which the greatest recognition of his work was the award of the Grand Prix of the International Triennial of Graphics in Krakow in 2018.
Karol Pomykała's linocuts can be admired in museums and private collections in Poland and abroad.

"Lublin is a very important place for me, here I work, here I studied, therefore an exhibition in this city is very special for me. Knowing about the upcoming date of the exhibition, I had one very big problem that I had been struggling with for over a year. A creative block. I stopped creating new things and during that time I didn't make any new prints.
After an intense creative year and having created a series of monumental prints combining technology with tradition, a crisis had hit me. Everything I was doing wasn't good enough for me, so I abandoned it. I wanted to create something new and break away from what I had already created. It was very hard for me as an artist, I felt I had stopped. Apparently, one of the ways of dealing with a crisis is a deadline, and this exhibition at Pracownia Otwarta Gallery is such a deadline. Therefore, I decided to act and the result of this action is a series of mini prints. The exhibition will feature my old works and 12 mini-prints, which have become a kind of exercise on creative blockage."
