AboutJakub Lukasiewicz is a visual artist whose works explore color, space, composition and perception. He uses painting, drawing, photography and digital media, to create self-challenge and question the way of changes in art forms. Using tools (such as history and architecture) in the construction and projection of dialogue with form. Since early in his career, Jakub has been impressed by the Ancient Greece, Rome, Gothic and Renaissance.
His focus is on the idea of the transformation and successful connection between old and new, now and then in physical and virtual FORM; and how our emotions and understanding of place can both be disrupted and enhanced through the process of creation and image making.
Lukasiewicz has captured landscapes on three continents often focusing on architecture and cultural identity. During his low-costs travels on bike, hitch-hiking and train he stayed in touch with real life of visiting places, processing flown space and moved around different cultures to observe similarities, differences and mutual influences.
In his work, Jakub seeks to balance composition, experiment with colour and create space and light. The subjects of the paintings are eclectic, with many allusions to history and tradition on the one hand and modern form of experssion on the other. Hipothetically Lukasiewicz could belong to the disputed movement Neoism and Fauvism. It would suit his attitude one that converges life and reality and which seeks to descredit a hierarchy of values.
