about

Mateusz Szczypiński – Visual Artist

Born in 1984 in Piekary Śląskie. In 2009 he graduated from History of Art at Jagiellonian University and in 2012 from Painting at Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. Represented by gallery lokal_30 from Warsaw. Lives and works in Cracow.

Mateusz Szczypiński(…)picked up collage to face the eternal question what is art/painting today, and what are their limits. He borrow from quotations and individual pieces that entered the pop culture vocabulary. He refer to the period preceding the postmodernism, where a piece of art enjoyed a specific standing, while an artist was approached as a genius or demiurge. He explores interrelations between the sacred and the profane; a copy and an original – what these mean in the contemporary culture where their borders are obliterated, with ever present reproduction, a copy of a copy, and the contact with an original is of second importance.
