Dawid Czycz

Dawid Czycz (born 1986) is a graduate of the Painting Faculty at the Fine Arts Academy in Cracow. He debuted with “Science & Fiction” exhibition at Zderzak – the gallery in Cracow he has been associated with since early years of studying.

His small canvases, figurative yet visibly influenced by surrealism, filled with bound animals, dismembered bodies and decomposed objets, undermine the belief in human perception and uncover the dark reverse of everyday life.

Czycz is a finalist of the 42nd “Bielska Jesień” Painting Biennial. He had several individual exhibitions, such as “O wadach”, “Ciała stałe” and “Woodland” at Zderzak Gallery in Cracow. He also took part in many group shows, such as “The Day When the Circus Arrives” at Yuki-Sis Gallery in Tokyo, “Somnambulat Eve” at the Wrong Door Gallery in London, “Artists from Cracow. Generation 1980-1990” at MOCAK Museum of Conteporary Art in Cracow, “Do(not) touch! Haptic aspects of Polish art after 1945” at the Centre for Contemporary Art in Toruń and “Takt” at the Starak Foundation in Warsaw.
