Przemek Matecki (born 1976) creates paintings, objects and installations, using subversive, trashy aesthetics. He paints on ordinary photographs from fashion magazines and glues them onto abstract canvases, moving dangerously close to the political and flirting with pornography. At the same time, the spontaneous syncretism of his work stays controlled, refined and based on deliberate construction.
He took part in a number of exhibitions at prestigious art galleries worldwide, including solo shows at Hollybush Gardens in London and Carlier Gebauer Gallery in Berlin, as well as “Oil Sketches” at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw and “Rough” at the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.
Matecki’s works are owned by the greatest private collectors, such as the Rubell Family (Miami) and Susan and Michael Hort (New York). They are also located in collections of, among others, the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw and the ING Polish Art Foundation in Warsaw.
