Mateusza Piestrak "Out", Warsaw 2014

Exhibition of Mateusz Piestrak- the finalist of 13th edition competition 21.11-30.12.2014

Project "Out" is the first individual show of the works by Mateusz Piestrak, the finalist of the Hestia Artistic Journey 2014 competition. The exhibition presents paintings from his B.A. diploma, realized at the University of Fine Arts in Poznan, under the guidance of Prof. Włodzimierz Dudkowiak. In his works, the artist searched for a space on the border of the plane of reality. Mateusz Piestrak utilized shades of black and yellow, creating a multidimensional answer to the question of what lies in between. Through a strong use of the colors and a sort of an afterimage emerging on the joint of the two worlds, the artist's paintings became an attempt at answering of what lies "beyond".

Mateusz Piestrak is a graduate of the University of Fine Arts in Poznan. He achieved his B.A. diploma in 2014 under the tutelage of Prof. Włodzimierz Dudkowiak. He engages in painting and installation art.
