Born in Jelenia Góra, Poland, Dobrowolski has long drawn from the aesthetics of his childhood hometown for inspiration. Delicately shaded large-scale paintings in monochrome hues are often layered with overlapping body parts or dream-like imagery. Inspired by Dalí and Escher as a child, Dobrowolski spent hours indoors sketching; drawing from his family’s collection of art books that had a profound influence on his practice.
Through continuous attention and action on social issues and humanitarianism, the artist Dobrowolski has developed a new series of works in 2020, using metal media and mirror treatment, carving on metal surfaces, and using mixed media and polyester, which creates three-dimensional crystals. The sorrow and suffering in the past are sublimated into beautiful crystals.
Through the characteristics of the metal and special treatment, the new series artwork is like the sun, shining brightly. The work is no longer just sorrow, but with a strong hope and power.
“It is very important for me to include, in all of my works a particle of hope, because I believe it is going to be better."
Even after the greatest tragedies.
