ANDRZEJ SZYMCZYK’S SCULPTURE IS FOUNDED IN A HYPER-REALISTIC RESPONSE TO ANIMAL FORMS, WHICH HE THEN BLENDS WITH VARYING DEGREES OF EXPRESSIVE INTERPRETATION.
A keen diver, he has based his most recent collection on his explorations of Madagascar’s coral reef, and it symbolises his reverence, fascination and dedication towards protecting the natural world, while at the same time reminding us of both its fragility and its necessity. Born in the Polish City of Krakow, Andrzej studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow before coming to the UK and graduating from Newcastle University. A member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, he is now based at Bow Arts in London. He has exhibited and sold his work in Poland and Germany and in recent years has established a strong reputation in the UK. His consummate collection of bronze sea creatures brings something completely new to the portfolio.
